Juan Manuel Garate talks Barredo down.  Garate is the secret caretaker of the peloton. At the Vuelta last year, he told Lars Boom which break to go in and helped him win the stage. Also, when Robert Gesink had a bad crash, Garate was the one who pushed him to the team bus while consoling him.

    I’ll be honest, I love the Tour de France. I just wish they’d been fined more than 300 euros, even though I like Barredo. But, seriously. A fistfight! At the TDF! They don’t even hit that hard in football (soccer).
