The last rider to win a
#TDF stage in a bunch sprint, in a mountain stage (incl. col +1st cat) & in a ITT in the SAME year:
Bernard Hinault in 1979
4x 1st ITT's
1x 1st bunch sprint Nogent-sur-Marne (39 riders)
1x 1st mountain stage Luchon - Pau (Peyresourde, Aspin, Soulor) pic.twitter.com/tEqZWagkCN
People citing Hinault in 1979 might be counting the Champs-Élysées as a sprint win, but it was a two-up breakaway. He did, however, win the day before in Nogent-sur-Marne in a bunch sprint, much to the surprise of the sprinters!
In Nogent sur Marne, Hinault didn't won by sprint. It was an more like a tactical attack at 400m. But anyway, it was an amazing victory, but not strictly a bunch sprint for me

We're most likely going to
#Paris next year - probably in the fall. This is what I want to see: #Napoleon's tomb at Les Invalides; Fort de Nogent - French Foreign Legion post in Paris & Lafayette's grave. As for the missus? Probably shopping or something like that, I guess. pic.twitter.com/fJNNyDl8T7
