- Today I pushed the lowest average power ever in a Tour de France stage, it was a super easy day. Magnus Cort did a great job in today’s final to keep me out of trouble until the final 3 kilometers of the stage. The goal was to get through this stage without any damage, and we managed to do that. Mission accomplished. For sure, tomorrow will be a more interesting race than today, - said Jakob Fuglsang.
The riders took off from Belfort to finish after 230 kilometers in Chalon-sur-Saone. With the day’s breakaway being caught with 10 kilometers to go, the sprinters decided who would take the stage win, with Dylan Groenewegen being the strongest sprinter of the day. Giulio Ciccone is still leading the overall, Jakob Fuglsang is still eleventh on 1’19” of the yellow jersey.
With seven categorized climbs, tomorrow’s stage of 200 kilometers will be a tough one. The riders will start from Macon to finish in Saint-Etienne.
