Reasonable year for the French

5 wins out of 15 so far isn't bad, and another consolation polka-dot jersey should be on the way. I'm sure they'll not be happy with no GC contender once again though.

Some of the other winners can speak French too.

Still, they could come out of the Tour this year having won more stages than Mark Cavendish ;) And I believe Cav may have done a French GCSE at school.
