Tour Tidbit du Jour - 7/11/2017

It seems like the photo finish has been getting a lot of use during the Tour so far, even in stages with riders one wouldn't expect to need them. The mountainous 9th stage had a long descent and flat run-in to the line with two climbers, Warren Barguil and Rigoberto Uran, sprinting for the very close win. This is not the first time these two have needed a photo finish to decide the victor between them. In the 2013 Vuelta, the photo finish on Stage 16 proved the day's winner. On that occasion, Warren Barguil took the win, so Uran finally got his revenge four years later.
