Urán ‘under the radar’ but flying high at end of Tour de France first week



EF Education-Nippo leader Rigoberto Urán has hardly put a foot wrong in this year’s Tour de France, and with the Alps on the horizon the 2017 runner-up looks well on course for another high finish in Paris.

The Colombian came into the race with his best form in years with a time trial stage win and second overall at the Tour de Suisse. Those results forced team boss Jonathan Vaughters to reassess the team’s goals for the Tour de France with Urán given greater protection during a dicey first week that has been littered with crashes.
