It was another good day for the Australian team, who won their second stage of this year’s Tour, when Simon Yates completed his set of Grand Tour stage wins. Matteo Trentin also took the combativity award and the team can now focus on trying to get Yates’s twin brother Adam as high as possible up the General Classification. He is currently in 7th place, 1min 47sec behind Julian Alaphilippe.
While passing through the feed zone yesterday, Rohan Dennis decided to dismount his bicycle and quit this year’s Tour. Almost 24 hours later, mystery continues to surround the Australian’s decision. The world ITT champion, Dennis was among the favourites for today’s stage, but abandoned the Tour despite not being ill or injured. Although he was spotted near his team bus at the end of the stage, he refused to speak to reporters and his team were vague when asked about what happened too.
