Dan McLay aims large this July even if it is his first Tour de France. He says, he dreamed of winning at the race when he was a boy, not just racing. Now, leading the sprints for French team Fortuneo-Vital Concept he would be happy with simply a sprint win.

The 24-year-old Brit already placed top ten in the first three sprints, taking seventh on Tuesday when the stage raced into Limoges.
