Cummings celebrates a big day out at the Tour de France

In Africa Steve Cummings is a hero after winning a stage at the Tour de France on Mandela Day. In France he is perhaps seen as a villain after beating Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) and Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale). For the MTN-Qhubeka team it was a historic day, taking their first ever Tour victory. For Cummings it is a day of celebration and redemption after years of injuries, doubts and misunderstandings with his teams and himself.
