Looking through the GC as of today I had to go all the way down to 32nd place to find the first French rider, then I noticed that there were 13 Spanish riders ahead of him (nearly 45% of the top 29 riders).
No other nation has more than 2 riders ahead of Spain's 13th!
Why does Spain have so many great riders? Culture? Genetics? Pharmacists?
And what about France, why such a poor showing? They have more guys in the race than most other nations, but no one in the top 30?
