Tour de France: Julian Alaphilippe can strengthen his yellow jersey in Colmar – Tour de France

The madness around the Yellow Jersey is still in the making, Julian Alaphilippe gets used to his new tunic, the public along the road too, and we feel that if the wick was lit, it has not yet reached the barrels nitro. It must be said that the stage of Tuesday was not conducive to the "enflammade", an almost tense arc between Reims and Nancy, broad roads, a wind that caressed most of the time the peloton in the direction of the hair … In short, the transitional stage par excellence, more animated by the crossing of Saint-Amand-sur-Fion, whose inhabitants seem to be very proud, than by the quick escape of Yoann Offredo, Frederik Backaert and Michael Schär . And the guarantee for Alaphilippe that not much was going to be able to disturb his first day in yellow.
