Tour Med: Mont Faron, France

And a French man won. 
Yesterday stage had been cancealed... for the vist of a minister! and the first news today was that Garmin abandoned because its bike had got stolen. But the show must go on and of course there was a break-away, including: Kern, Urtasun, Keizer, Feillu, Arango and Lequatre. Daniel Oss  (BMC) and Aleksejs Saramotins (IAM Cycling) were chasing and soon joined the group.
Team Blanco was pulling at the front and aproaching Toulon only Brice Feillu and Pablo Urtsasun were still away. 7 km to go they were caught too and all together the peloton started climbing the Mont Faron. Pity there was no streaming. Matteo Montaguti attacked. Then Jurgen Roelandts and Jean-Christophe Peraud. We couldn't see it so I just can say Peraud won. 
Lars Boom crossed the finish line more than 1' later so losing the leader jearsy in favour of Maxim Monfort. He speaks French too. A good day for RSNT. And of course I'm glad to see Bauke Mollema on 3rd place :D
