Tour de France Stage 18: Boring but for Burghardt

Team Columbia’s Marcus Burghardt won today’s unenthusiastic 122-mile stage into Saint-Étienne. In a year from now, we won’t remember this day, but we won’t forget Burghardt’s canine collision in last year’s Tour:

Stage 18 was a bummer day for Italy’s little prince Damiano Cunego. He fell early in the race and cut open his chin. After getting roadside stitches, he and his Lampre team finished twenty minutes back in their own small group. Lucky for them–they beat the time cutoff.
