THE SITUATION OF THE RACE
In a normal year, we might have been content to turn on the TV around 5.30 p.m. to give a brief review of the winner, hoping that he would be French, a good habit for a few seasons (Démare en 2016, Alaphilippe en 2019). But we are so happy to see cycling again that we are making an exception this time around, just to warm up before all those Tour de France lives that await us at the start of the school year. Joy and pleasure. Taken on the air at 5 p.m., be there.
