Your question is an opportunity for me to share the excellent portrait of the Groupama-FDJ rider taken by my colleague Pierre, who is just as excellent, wearing a news polka dot jersey on his shoulders. I’ll pass the baton to him and meet you tomorrow morning at 9 o’clock.

This promises us a Dantesque finale, scheduled for mid-afternoon.
