The next failing: O'Connor increases from the bike

As the French Equipe announced on Monday, O'Connor can no much longer proceed the big loop as a result of an injury to the conservative muscle. For AG2R-Citröen it is currently the second failure in France after Geoffrey Bouchard needed to be gotten of the race recently as a result of a favorable test for the Coronavirus.

O'Connor was hope of AG2R-Citröen in the overall position

Ben So 164 of the initially begun 176 vehicle drivers remain in the race. All Germans are still there. Along with Bouchard, Begard Stake Laengen also had to surrender the scenic tour of France since of a favorable Corona test, all other exits resulted from injuries or various other factors for illness.

With O'Connor, AG2R-Citröen loses its fantastic hope in the total ranking. The 26-year-old, who has his strengths in the hills, ended up being 4th in the past year and narrowly missed the podium. He won the challenging mountain arrival in Tignes as a musician.
