Tour de France, final stage on Champs-Elysees in Paris: Philipsen wins, Vingegaard yellow jersey
Running on the Elysian Fields rewards the younger Belgian, after Carcassonne. Tadej places on a present and assaults 6 km from the end line, with Ganna in proof. Now the Dane has to consider being the protagonist in the massive image as properly
And so the Tour ends with one other younger man in the victory of the technology that’s in energy: on the Elysian Fields, the race that the athlete deserves to win in the classical traditional, Belgian Jasper Philipsen, 24 years outdated, one in every of his finest buddies. of Pogacar, the second victory after Carcassonne. Dutch Groenewegen and Norwegian Kristoff had been overwhelmed, Mozzato eleventh finest Italian. Philipsen runs for Patrick Lefevere’s Quick Step, which opens and closes the Tour: he received the yellow jersey in Copenhagen and Lampaert’s victory in the primary time trial. The Danish Jonas Vingegaard received the 109th version of the Tour with 2’43” over Tadej Pogacar from Slovenia and seven’22” over Geraint Thomas from Britain.
And we need to discuss Tadej Pogacar’s assault 6 km from the top, each on the left, whereas Geraint Thomas and Pippo Ganna come from the precise? This is the Tour, that is Pogacar, unstoppable, capable of chuckle at his rivals at any time. Even if it decides every thing, even when it ends.
Hope The choice is in Bilbao, Spain, in 2023. And the contenders for the yellow jersey may even be joined by Colombia’s Egan Bernal. Yes, as a result of from 2019 to in the present day the final winners of the Tour had been, Bernal, Tadej Pogacar (twice) and in the present day Jonas Vingegaard, with tears in his eyes on a Parisian night, with little Frida on the rostrum. Those are the three ideas of this age.
Pictures Edition 109 leaves three photographs earlier than our eyes. First, the issues of the yellow jersey, are restricted to Vingegaard and Pogacar after the Arenberg stone stage. A Dane, 25, and a Slovenian, 23, ran; 173 different runners; Rider 1, Wout Van Aert, as a substitute did what he needed, from absolute protagonist to chief, from three wins to 4 second locations. No opponent was ready to answer Vingegaard’s and Pogacar’s pursuit, their promotion. From the third finish of Geraint Thomas (large, Welshman, 36 years outdated) to Gaudu, Vlasov, Quintana, Bardet, Meitjes, Lutsenko and Adam Yates: all high gamers. If we contemplate that the third, Thomas, has closed nearly 8′ (all such a distinction from Nibali 2014), and the tenth total, Yates, is 25′ behind Vingegaard, we perceive very properly what the journey was like. Also as a result of solely 135 riders made it to Paris: 41 retired out of 176 starters, not counted since 2000.
Groups Yes, the 2 performed one other recreation. Pogacar was quickly left with out a companion, stopped by Covid, and misplaced the Tour in the Galibier part after reaching the Col du Granon as a result of he was alone in the arms of Vingegaard, Roglic and Kruijswijk. On the opposite hand, Jumbo-Visma recalled, on the technical facet, the management of the Sky staff of Wiggins and Froome, however with a distinction: that it was a staff centered on absolutely the chief, the Dutch staff had a minimum of two leaders. Vingegaard and Van Aert) is half-a-point as Roglic.
The future What to ask Vingegaard now? Don’t simply go to the Tour de France. Because Pogacar received the yellow jerseys together with Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the Giro di Lombardia, together with the Strade Bianche. Vingegaard also needs to participate in the monuments, he must be seen extra. It is barely in this fashion that many individuals will admire him with out considering of him as a rider in the Tour de France.
