CHRIS FROOME: 7 pts
Turning the Tour de France into a momentary duathlon, Chris Froome got off his bike and performed the most difficult task known to humanity: running in road cycling shoes. For this, and this alone, he will go into the annals of cycling history.
THE CITY OF BERN: 1 pts
Aside from mountain stages, the Tour’s finishes are usually devoid of much excitement (as is often the case at the Giro). It took a trip to Switzerland for a tricky and interesting finish to finally give the Tour a much-needed boost in terms of exciting finishes.
JARLINSON PANTANO: 3 pts
As team IAM comes to an end, the Colombian rider has shown his worth, winning a stage and sprinting for the win the day after (plus going for the win this week in Stage 17!).
ALEX HOWES: 2 pts
Way to break away, Alex. Your animalness even inspired us to have a surprise fire sale in the MFS Shop—not many can claim to have done that.
VANDE VELDE’S BEEFY NOSE MOLE: 1 pts
Those unlucky enough to watch American coverage of the Tour have no doubt come face to face with Christian Vande Velde’s mole, which sits at the apex of his lower right nostril. Like something that could only be at home on Lemmy’s face (you know, the guy from Motorhead), Vande Velde’s mole has hung in there through thick and thin, and is to be commended for its longevity.
