Colorful commentary heard today: "Today was a stage and a half", "You can't win today, but you can definitely lose". Overall standings changed with several riders in the top 10 losing time. One stat thrown around today was that in the first 10 days there were 10 different stage winners, the first time since 2002. Today's feel good story was the stage win by Wout Van Aert of Belgium, 25 year old three time world cyclocross champion and first time Tour de France (TdF) rider. He said the TdF is larger than he imagined and he values his stage win more than any other career win. Rest day tomorrow.
