Lanterne Rouge (TDF2019 Stage 8) Yoann Offredo (Wanty-Gobert Cycling Team)

After winning the red dossard the day before, Yoann Offredo (Wanty-Gobert Cycling Team) suffered during the entire 8th stage behind the peloton. 

Offredo is the last rider in the general classification since the 5th stage.

He had a serious crash and was temporary paralysed earlier this year.  But now he is at the Tour de France and expetimented the two sides of fighting within two days. On the 7th stage he was one of the breakaway riders, meanwhile he spent the next day with the special “time trial”, with the battle against the time limit behind the peloton.

Offredo had the companion of Christophe Laporte ( Cofidis), another rider, who got sick overnight and suffered on the stage, but he abandoned the race. Lars Bak (Dimension Data) joined him later and they together managed to get home in time.
