After a sleepy start to this year’s race, today’s Tour de France stage saw more action than Julian Alaphilippe’s beard trimmer. The day had everything: Double crosswinds! GC intrigue! Green jersey hi-jinx! Shop-soiled white jersey! Only the polka dots managed to look after themselves.
Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) won the stage, Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) stays in yellow but it was anything but business as usual.
