The second rest day at the 2016 Tour de France provided the peloton and associated entourage with a brief respite from the daily stage race routine, but for top riders like Chris Froome it was a day of fulfilling Team Sky sponsor obligations and feeding the always carnivorous press.
World champion and three-stage winner Peter Sagan and his Tinkoff team had a nice coffee shop ride with team owner Oleg Tinkov, while Trek-Segafredo took a short post-breakfast spin that included a stop at the American Embassy in Berne.
The peloton faces four tough days in the Alps before the parade stage to the final sprint along the Champs-Elysees on Sunday, but the light is now visible at the end of the tunnel. This final rest day will help riders re-stoke the fires to get through.
