The results of the 17th stage of the Tour de France is paradoxical for David Gaudu. The Breton climber could not keep the pace of the best, but it consolidates its 5th place and even resumes a few seconds in Nairo Quintana. The Finistérien is now targeting 4th place in Paris.

David? It is at level (sic) . Is he in his place? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe better, maybe worse. Listening to Marc Madiot is not always the assurance of benefiting from a summary to the hair on things. This is a good war, because the manager of Groupama-FDJ knows how the Tour de France , until his epilogue, can reserve the worst surprises, like the best. To prove it, should we remember the case of Thibaut Pinot's tragic fate, at the end of the 2019 Tour de France?

"I arm myself with beautiful emotions"

The formation of the clover can still hope to launch bad spells for adversity. Without that, it must be written and recognized this morning, David Gaudu will not go on the podium in Paris. The gap between the Breton, fifth shrimp by Geraint Thomas, third, is now 3’01 ’’, against 1’41 ’’ on Wednesday morning. It is no longer a milestone to cross, it is a peninsula ...

The real question that is as follows: Gaudu, with his shortcomings in time and, whatever we say, his young age (25 years old (25 years old (25 years old (25 years old (25 years ), isn't it just in its place? "Today (Wednesday) , Valentin (Madouas) still saves the C .. , laughs Le Breton, whose post-race debriefings gain in authenticity. He dragged me into the penultimate mounted, in the descent, towards Peyragudes. I arm myself beautiful emotions to hold. It’s the head that directs. And it works. It may be fate. We are still fighting for the top 5, it's already huge.

 Cycling: Juliette Labous changes gear before the Tour de France female © Panoramic Juliette Labous will aim for the general classification on the occasion of the return from France. Juliette Labous is surely the best French chance on this female Tour de France (July 24 to 31). For the return of the event, the bisontine will aim "the best possible place" in the general classification and try to make itself known to the general public.

On the one hand, before this round, the head of the Finistère had had a plan whose purpose remained the podium in Paris. On the other hand, his new status as a single leader on the Tour de France asks to be experienced, if not validated. In addition, Gaudu proves on this edition that the big strokes less well to which he was subscribed in previous years have become foreign to him or almost.

Objective Quintana

Better still: he knows how to watch when he must watch, like the last kidney stroke just before the arrival, whose recipient is called ... Nairo Quintana, to whom Gaudu takes up five seconds in the process. He did not pass a relay in the last climb. My sports director told me to make him shine in the last ramp. He launched too far. I said to myself: you my coconut, I'll pick you up and drop you off. It’s a return of things. The Colombian, four seconds in front of the Breton to the general, is the number one target of the latter. The level of the two climbers is comparable on the time trial, where Gaudu, for the sake of optimization of performance, while the individual exercise is a bit unnatural to him, will wear a new handlebar on Saturday in Rocamadour .

conversely, and outside of Madouas, the supporters are scarce for the Finistère. At most bad Wednesday, Kevin Geniets ended up courage. Australian Michael Storer was not of great help, any more than a Thibaut Pinot in the downward phase. And the Franc-Comtois goes straight to the point: I am bad ...
