Michel Pollentier, a 27-year-old Belgian from the Velda-Flandria team writes his name into history.

Seven hours and 20 minutes have passed on the 16th stage of the Tour de France and Michel Pollentier, a 27-year-old Belgian from the Velda-Flandria team is about to write his name into history.

Who: Michel Pollentier
