Impressions from the 2nd stage of the Tour de France where our Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka got to enjoy having the yellow jersey for a day. See how the day panned out here: http://africasteam.com/2016/07/03/tour-de-france-2-an-amazing-stage-in-yellow-for-cavendish-and-dimension-data-for-qhubeka/.
The 2nd stage of the Tour de France saw the World Champion, Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), take both the stage and yellow jersey honours just as Mark Cavendish had done yesterday. Julien Alaphilippe (Etixx-Quickstep) placed 2nd and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) was 3rd on the stage. For Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka it was a magical day, taking the start in Saint-Lo as the leaders of the Tour de France thanks to Cavendish’s terrific victory on stage 1. With the yellow jersey in our African Team camp, the crowds flocked to the Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka bus, just to catch a glimpse of our Manxman before.
