Tour De France Video: Stage 7 GoPro Highlights

All 198 participants of the 103rd Tour de France started stage 7, a first time in the history that no abandon was recorded in the first six stages. Twelve riders rode away from the peloton in the first kilometers of racing after leaving L’Isle-Jourdain: Gorka Izagirre (Movistar), Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana), Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), Jarlinson Pantano (IAM Cycling), Ramunas Navardauskas (Cannondale-Drapac), Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data), Jérémy Roy (FDJ), Cesare Benedetti (Bora-Argon 18), Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida), Nicolas Edet and Geoffrey Soupe (Cofidis), Chris Anker Sørensen (Fortuneo-Vital Concept). Sagan and Cavendish obviously had in mind to contest the intermediate sprint located with only 25.5km to go just before the ascent to col d’Aspin but Belgian teams Etixx-Quick Step and Lotto-Soudal successively chased hard to bring them back. The bunch was packed again at km 43.
