Le Tour de France 2016 - 17. Stage 17: Berne / Finhaut-Emosson

The Tour flew its colors
Through the Rhone Valley
Racing races within the Race
On this 17th day of Riding

Christopher Froome
Yellow Jersey
Of this sunshine shirt
Boasts the shortest cumulative time

Yellow Helmet
Bouncing, bobbing among the bicyclists
Top Team of the Race
Tagged yellow too

Julian Alaphilippe
Red tagged
Rider Most Aggressive

Peter Sagan
Green Jersey gotten
By gathering points
For speedy sprints
At designated intervals
Where the road runs flat

Adam Yates
White Jersey denotes the fastest
Though smartest may be a better word
Having figured out how to survive
A grand tour bike race when not yet 25

Rafal Majka
Red polka dot jersey a perennial favorite
of fans
In the mountains where points
Are collected
By cresting summits, climbing quicker
Than the competition

Every finish line a chance for first
Riding in Russian red
Ilner Zakarin wins the day’s stage
