Stage 19 was first lengthened and then shortened due to a rider strike. But Josef Cerny was a deserving winner, taking a Grand Tour stage for the soon to disappear CCC team. Victor Campenaerts (NTT) was second and Jacopo Mosca (Trek-Segafredo) third. Wilco Kelderman (Sunweb) finished in the peloton to hold the overall lead.
It seems like Serge Pauwels has been around for ever, and sixteen years in the pro peloton is a long time. 'Been there, got the T shirt' a phrase you could use for the 36 year-old Belgian who has signed contracts with six different pro teams during his career. Ed Hood caught up with Serge for his thoughts on career and retirement.
