Tour Tidbit du Jour - 7/14/2017

Stage 9 of the Tour was responsible for the withdrawal of 13 riders, the most in a single day since 1998. What wasn't mentioned in the broadcast was that 9 entire teams pulled out in one day, 7 during Stage 17 leading to its cancellation and 2 more overnight, to protest the Festina doping affair that had already seen the expulsion of the Festina Team and Team TVM. Only 10 teams out of the original 21 finished the Tour of Doping.
