THEMOVE: 2023 Tour de France Stage 9
Lance, JB, and George break down Mike Woods’ incredible victory atop the historic Puy de Dôme climb, which hadn’t been used since the 1988 edition and delivered a great spectacle in its long-awaited return. They go through how the veteran Canadian managed the tricky dynamics of the early breakaway to reel in a devastated Matteo Jorgenson just before the finish line, before discussing the GC battle that played out on the slopes below. Mainly, how Tadej Pogačar is looking better and better as the race goes on and how his small time gains over Jonas Vingegaard will start to become fatal to Jumbo-Visma’s quest to win the overall if they continue through the second and third weeks of the race. They wrap up the show by going through a difficult stage 10 that awaits the riders following Monday’s rest day.
