‘This is no procession’ – Annemiek van Vleuten forced to chase down peloton after mechanical at Tour de France Femmes

Annemiek van Vleuten may hold a 3’14” advantage over Demi Vollering in the general classification. However, the final stage of the women’s race is – unlike the men’s – far from a procession.
