As we wrote yesterday, Marcel Kalz had a problem with Ali Rıza Tanrıverdi of Brisaspor yesterday and his team, Rudy Project, consciously remained behind the peloton at today’s stage. Since they kept riding behind the peloton persistently, the riders were called to the broom wagon in order not to keep the roads busy anymore. According to the commisaires’ decision, Rudy Project team will no longer be able to race in this year’s tour, while the team manager and the riders were each fined for their attitude.

 

The riders of Brisaspor, who we interviewed before the stage started, said that they were ready for today and would carry Stefan Hristov to the finish.

 

 

As they approached the finish line, the riders had to struggle with the light hail which came after the rain. When they reached the partly snowcapped summit, they faced the winds, scorching from one side and ice-cold from the other one. Many of the riders had difficulties at those moments both because of the steep slope and the adverse wind.

 

 

 

 

According to the latest information we received from the referees, one of the motorcycles carrying a commisaire had an accident and both the rider and the commisaire were taken to the hospital.

 

Ghader Mizbani Iranagh who won the victory at the summit finish today, will wear the Golden Jersey tomorrow. The other names to wear the jerseys tomorrow are:
