#AllezMcLay Stage 14: Hotel. Beats. Sprint.

Stage 14 Tour de France hotel

 

Stage 14 had a flat run-in and was always earmarked to come down to a bunch sprint. Probably the last chance of a sprint before the Champs Elysee stage next weekend.  The sprinter's teams didn't disappoint. The day's breakaway was caught easily, after a very pedestrian pace in the early part of the day.

 

Dan's sprint didn't quite go to plan. Despite his team mates doing a great job looking after him through the stage he picked the wrong line in the finale and decided not to even contest the final kick - instead rolling over the line in 18th position.

 

The disappointment of the stage was compensated for a little though by the discovery that the team were staying tonight in a much better than usual issue ASO hotel! Enjoy your evening gentlemen!
