THEMOVE: 2023 Tour de France Stage 2

On the Tour’s final day of its challenging opening weekend in the Basque Country, Lance, JB, and George discuss how Cofidis’ Victor Lafay leveraged an impressive level of patience to upset the heavy pre-stage favorites, all while delivering his Cofidis’ team their first Tour de France stage win of his career, and deliver his Cofidis team their first Tour stage win since 2008. They also break down how the stage highlighted the tactical battle between the two dominant teams of this Tour, UAE and Jumbo-Visma, the importance these early time bonuses could play later on, if either of the two GC favorites are likely to crack at any point in this race, and Neilson Powless’ decision to focus on the Polka Dot Jersey.
