Dylan Groenewegen avenged his recent woes in the Tour de France when he outsprinted the bunch to snatch the longest stage in this Tour de France over 230 km between Belfort and Chalon-sur-Saone. The Dutchman, hampered by a crash in stage 1, when his lead-out man Mike Teunissen won the stage and took the yellow jersey, made amends with a commanding sprint, which he won ahead of Australian Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) and points leader Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe). Breakaway addicts Stephane Rossetto and Yoann Offredo stayed in the front for 218 km before leaving the stage for the sprinters to take the limelight. Italy’s Giulio CIccone finished in the pack and retained his yellow jersey.
The start was given at 11:35 to all 174 riders who finished yesterday. On the gun, Stéphane Rossetto (Cofidis) and Yoann Offredo (Wanty-Gobert) embarked on a long duo in the longest stage of this edition. At kilometer 8, several riders, including Tejay Van Garderen (Education First) and former yellow jersey holder Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma) crashed but managed to make it back on their bikes. Van Garderen had to be treated by the medical with bruises on his face and knees. The lead of the two escapees increased regularly and topped at 5:40 at kilometre 40 when the peloton decided to keep the gap within five minutes.
Cat and mouse
Offredo and Rossetto shared the KOM points on the three climbs of the day (two points for Rossettto, two for Offredo) ridden at a reasonable pace (35 kph) because of headwind. Nicolas Roche (Team Sunweb) crashed with 130 km to go but was quickly back in the pack. The peloton, constantly led by Tony Martin (Jumbo-Visma), Kasper Asgreen (Deceuninck-Quick Step) and Maxime Monfort (Lotto-Soudal) brought the gap down under two minutes with 60 km left in the stage while quelling counterattack attempts.
Sprint and split
The only intermediate sprint of the day, 33 km from the finish, led the peloton to move up a gear. While Offredo crossed the line in front of Rossetto, the battle was fierce behind them for green jersey points — Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) crossed the line ahead of green jersey holder Peter Sagan, Elia Viviani and Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb). While the pack was nearly catching the two front riders, a number of riders were caught in a split at the back, among them Nairo Quintana, Dan Martin, Wout Van Aert or Simon Yates. They made it back as the pack kept controlling the two escapees.
Dylan sings again
The 218-km break was brought to an end with 12 km to go as the sprinters trains started taking shape while the GC teams also tried to avoid trouble at the front of the bunch. Jumbo-Visma quickly took the reins under the red flame and Caleb Ewan seemed to have the upper hand when he launched the sprint from afar. But Dylan Groenewegen surged back to overtake him by the slimmest margin on the line and conquer his 4th stage win on the Tour de France ahead of the Asutralian while Sagan added precious points to his green jersey.
NTT, the official Tour de France tech partner, clocked Dylan Groenewegen at 74.1 km/h today. The Dutchman’s victorious sprint in Châlon-sur-Saône was by far the fastest dash to the line since the start of this year’s Tour, relegating the 70.2 km/h sprint in Nancy to second place.
It was 22 years since the last time that a Dutch rider, like Dylan Groenewegen (winner of the Champs-Élysées stage in 2017, two stages in 2018 and one in 2019), claimed at least one stage in three editions in a row. Back then, it was also a sprinter, Jeroen Blijlevens, who racked up victories in 1995, 1996 and 1997. He even made it four in 1998, when he won the stage to Cholet.
Only two riders in the Tour peloton have tasted victory at least once in each of the last three editions of the Tour: Dylan Groenewegen and, of course, Peter Sagan. Since 2016, the Slovak has won stages in four consecutive editions.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka finished off this year’s Tour de France with another podium performance by Edvald Boasson Hagen who sprinted to third place on the final stage of the race.
Per tradition, the day started out with smiles and laughter as the riders left Montgeron and headed towards Paris. However, as the peloton entered the iconic circuit on Champs-Élysées, the faces of the riders were now very focused and ready to race hard.
Multiple riders tried to escape as they started on the eight laps and ultimately, a strong group managed to distance the peloton. Jaco Venter and Steve Cummings helped to set the pace in the pack and with 10 km left to go, it was all back together again.
The remaining Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders always kept Boasson Hagen near the front and together with Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, the fast Norwegian entered the final corners in a good position.
Dylan Groenewegen (Team LottoNL-Jumbo) started his sprint early and quickly opened up a small gap. Boasson Hagen tried to close the gap but at the end, he had to settle for third place. In addition to his impressive victory on stage 19, this was the fifth time Boasson Hagen finished in Top3 during this Tour de France.
