Skujiņš still in polka dots on Tour de France

Take note – story published 5 years ago

Latvia's Toms Skujiņš is still going strong at the Tour de France, starting Day 9 again in the polka dot joursey of the King of the Mountains. And with Monday designated a rest day, he will retain the jersey until July 17 when the race heads into the Alps proper and competition for the jersey is sure to increase considerably.

Nevertheless, Skuniņš continues to impress on his debut tour, currently holding 101st position in the general classification and 59th in the green jersey points classification. On July 15 he was part of a coordinated effort from his Trek-Segafredo team that resulted in team-mate John Degenkolb claiming a stage victory. 

There is also a nice interview with Toms in Peloton Magazine at the moment in which he talks about growing up in Latvia.
