- I was a bit tired after the travel from Norway (Arctic Race of Norway) to France, so I’m happy with this result. There was a big change in temperature, so today was about adapting to these circumstances. It was an aggressive race and the finish was technical, but I felt quite good and managed to reach my main goal, which was to finish in the same time as the winner. I’m looking forward to the time trial on Thursday, as I’m curious what I can do there. -Hugo Houle.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
