It was a little over a year ago that a cyclesguff post went out with a final comment 'I just hope that Voeckler can hold on to the jersey for the French to enjoy the glory on Bastille Day.'
The Maillot Jaune sits firmly on Wiggin's shoulders, but after today's stage le Chou-Chou thoroughly deserves the Polka Dot jersey that he is just about to adorn.
This guffer is just back from a holiday in the Vendée Region of France. The spectacular Bastille Day fireworks put on by the splendid little town of La Tranche-sur-Mer would be fitting for the heroics of today's stage. After all, Voeckler now lives in the Vendée and I would have loved to be sitting in a local seaside bar watching the stage unfold in the manner that it did today.
