Tour de France Stage 8 – He gone!

Those immortal words of White Sox broadcaster Hawk Harrelson appropriate for two situations today: Ciccone losing the yellow jersey and Teejay Van Garderen exiting the tour after his crash yesterday.

Apparently Trek-Segafredo wasn’t up to the task of keeping the yellow today and pretty much left Ciccone hanging in the breeze on his own today. The kid did a fine job of at least keeping it close but lots of racing left. Alaphilippe took the yellow back and put 23 seconds into the lead. Doubtful he’s going to keep it through Paris, especially with how crazy this Tour has been so far.

Teejay crashed hard yesterday and broke his hand so today he didn’t start. Always the underdog and still my favorite rider.
