July 23, 2016 – Just when one thought that the standings were set in this year’s Tour de France, the final four days in the Alps provided a major shakeup in the standings, as Bauke Mollema disintegrated, slipping from second to 11th in the final standings, while Romain Bardet and Nairo Quintana moved into the final podium positions.
