Tour Tidbit du Jour - 7/12/2017


Edvald Boasson Hagen - Number 92. Not abandoned... yet.

According to Edmund Hood, who reads L'Equipe so I don't have to, the sports daily crunched through their database and found that the unluckiest number in the Tour is actually 92, not 13. The rider wearing #92 has abandoned the Tour 34 times out of the past 103 editions. The last 92 to quit the Tour was Janier Acevedo in 2014 while riding for Garmin-Sharp. Here's hoping Edvald doesn't become the 35th nonfinisher wearing the 92 tag.
