Tour Medeterraneen could have been better termed “Tour of John Degenkolb Winning Sprints Easily”. The look-back-and-cruise on Stage 2 was particularly Cipo’-esq.
Still, BMC’s Steve Cummings won the TT on the the second half of the split stage on Day 3, and (apparently, anyway—the footage I got was heavily edited, thus no #iasg) showed true grit, losing time but hanging on through the final day’s uphill finish on Mount Faron to take the overall.
From what I did see, Eduardo Sepulveda of my least favorite TdF wildcard, Bretagne-Seche Environnement, was both very active, the young GC winner, and a near-ish miss on Mount Faron. I’ll be keeping an eye peeled for him come July.
