for the most combative rider

I wonder how his fellow riders felt? I hope no one got hurt.

Combative as in "attacking the lead" He lead a good breakaway for awhile. Good to see Japanese riders doing well in European racing.

And as a bonus he gets kisses from the pretty ladies.

He rode very well and deserves this award. It's great to see Japan represented on The Tour and I hope to see more Japanese riders come through the ranks in the years to come.

That was an interesting stage to watch. I was hoping he would win the stage, that would have been really nice. But I think he has a chance at winning a stage if his team can keep up with him on the next run. Well done!
