At the end of a Dantesque day in the Savoie region of France, after nine stages, the Tour-de-France caravan headed southwest for the first rest day; perfect timing for an initial recap. The Italian Fabio Aru (stage 5), and the Frenchman Lilian Calméjane (stage 8), have given the KEO BLADE CARBON two great victories in this edition of the Grande Boucle. Fabio Aru and Romain Bardet, 2nd and 3rd respectively in the general classification, can dream of yellow before tackling the Pyrenees.

Team Fortuneo-Oscaro has been on the offense since the flats of stage one with Laurent Pichon, and again, in the days that followed, with teammates Pierre-Luc Périchon and Maxime Bouet. The French squad has accumulated a total of 628 breakaway kilometers!

Brice Feillu, currently 20th in the overall, can start week two of the Tour with ambition. Winner of stage 7 in 2009 that finished in Arcalis (Valnord), Andorra, he has chosen to ride the 785 HUEZ RS since day one. And in the Pyrenees, Brice should feel like a kid on a playground riding the new LOOK creation.
