After some decent results on Mont Faron in the past, Jean Chistophe Peraud has today won on top of the Tour de Mediterranean's signature climb.  The peloton caught the break before the foot of the climb to the stage four finish, and Peraud was quick to attack early on the climb. He held off all comers and crossed the line for his first win since 2009. I am doubly happy to congratulate the 35 year-old French time trial [mostly] specialist because his win helped one of my fantasy teams to win the stage today. Check it out, these were the rankings today, I'm "bkSuperba":

You may also notice that I am currently wearing three race jerseys. That's my brag for the day.

"First Loser" is a moniker sometimes applied to the person who comes in second in any race...

First Place:                                                                   Second Place:

But Francesco Reda has ridden a very good race for his Pro-Continental team Androni Giocattoli, finishing second on the queen stage today...
