Steve Bauer and Canada’s greatest Tour de France

“Bauer had to be shrewd during that first week of the Tour. ‘When you are close to the lead, the key is looking for opportunities,’ Bauer said. ‘You can’t really force it, unless you strong-arm the race on a stage that is particularly suited to you. For example, now in the Tour, it would be a mountaintop stage for a climber. It seems obvious there. But in the first week of the Tour, it’s not obvious. There’s rolling terrain with different types of finishes. You cannot lose time. And you look for those spots, like maybe a breakaway, that could get you that jersey back.'”
