‘Worst day of my life’ – Fred Wright suffers through stage 11 with broom wagon and misses time limit

    “That was the worst day of my life,” was the poignant summary of stage 11 at the Tour de France by Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious). Riding most of the hilly 211km into the Massif Central well behind the main field, the 25-year-old had only the broom wagon for company on the final climbs into Le Lioran.

    TV cameras captured the slow progress for Wright as he crossed the finish line trailed by the tell-tale broomwagon to the applause from a small crowd. His day, and his Tour, ended with the clock showing he was outside the limit – one hour, one minute and 50 seconds behind stage winner Jonas Vingegaard (Visma-Lease a Bike).
