Tour de France. Stage 14.
Despite all of the negativity that is present in this years Tour, today's stage had another gem for those who wanted to see it.
A great final climb, with a pair of French riders wanting to make something of a failed Tour, ultimately being beaten by an Englishman riding for an African team.
While everyone seems to be talking about doping like it's 2005, some truly great racing is going on.
Seemingly coming out of nowhere, someone made it up to the two Frenchmen.
Throwing himself into corners in a do- or die way, he earned himself first place. His first stage win in the Tour, and his teams first win in the Tour.
Tv-commentators everywhere must have been talking about how great this victory is, and how much it means. And they are right, it was even on Mandela day..
