We’re proud of EF Education First – Drapac p/b Cannondale’s Lawson Craddock earning Rouleur’s esteemed Top Banana honor in stage two of the 2018 Tour de France. After a crash in the opening stage of the Tour, we were happy to see him safely battle to today’s finish line.
The Rouleur Top Banana goes to an unsung hero of each stage of the Tour de France – not the winner, not the yellow jersey – but a rider whose efforts deserve recognition.
They make ’em tough in Texas. No-one would have blamed Lawson Craddock for calling it a Tour after yesterday’s horror crash, but despite being bloody, bruised and broken, he races on. Top Banana, and then some.
