Tour de France. Stage 16. Top 10 for Michael Valgren at first Pyrenees stage
At the first mountain stage in the Pyrenees, Michael Valgren finished seventh, behind winner Julian Alaphilippe. Valgren was part of the initial breakaway group of 47 riders, and was able to stay in a strongly reduced group until the final climb. In the peloton, Jakob Fuglsang attacked on this final climb together with teammate Jesper Hansen, but they didn’t succeed in getting clear. Because of the finish in the peloton today, Fuglsang is still ninth in the general classification.
