I’ve read Will Frishkorn‘s blog for a while now. When I started reading it, he was a rider on a top domestic team with a great anti-doping message (and some international ambitions) and it was kind of a look at a side of cycling I didn’t actively follow. Of course, in the time since the now Garmin-Chipotle has recruited like mad and secured spots at some of the most prestigious races in the world- including the Tour de France. Which brings us to yesterday, where Will Frishkorn was out in the breakaway in the third stage of the Tour for over 200 kilometers, finishing second and jumping up to third in the GC. While I was really pulling for him to take the stage win, it was still a fantastic result for both Will and the team. To have such a high profile day so early in is a great boost for the wild card entry.
As a consolation, of sorts, the French got some early results in the form of a stage win and the yellow jersey.
As for stage 2, Thor must have heard me question his form. He looked great in taking the hotly contested second stage. I’m still looking for Cavendish to come through in a big way.
