Louis Meintjes. Tour de France 2017, cycling, white jersey

Louis Meintjes: South Africa’s mountain climbing hero

The race for the white jersey was also going to be one of the most intriguing subplots of the Tour de France 2017. Especially since one of the favourites was South Africa’s very own Louis Meintjes. At 25-years old, it was his last chance to contest for this honour. After his strong showing at the Critérium du Dauphiné in June 2017, he sent a clear message that the white jersey was very much within his reach. […]
