Gruber Gallery: The longest Tour de France stage

    #GreenArgyle rolled into Salon-de-Provence surrounding Rigoberto Uran. A large breakaway escaped around 30-kilometers into the 222-kilometer day. Although Pierre Rolland and Dylan van Baarle had followed early attacks, Cannondale-Drapac lacked representation in the move that eventually received the nod. No matter. The main mission of stage 19 was to look after Uran. A train of lime green with Uran as caboose made it clear this mission was fully embraced from race start to finish.

    Edvald Boasson Hagen delivered Dimension Data its first 2017 Tour de France stage victory more than 12 minutes ahead of the Sky-led bunch. Uran ended the day as he began it – in third place overall, 29″ down on Chris Froome (Sky) and 6″ down on Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale).
