A nervy trip along the west coast for Stage 10 of 2020 Tour de France brought a few crashes and a fiercely contested sprint finish. Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quickstep) beat Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) to win the stage, pick up the green jersey and complete his haul of stages at all three Grand Tours. Despite the odd scare, there are no changes to the general classification. Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) is still in the maillot jaune.
The day was long, the finale was full of pinch-points and roundabouts, but at the close of play Elia Viviani rode the coat-tails of a fantastic Deceuninck-Quickstep leadout to take his first victory at La Grand Boucle. Dropped off to perfection, the Italian had the pace to come around Alexander Kristoff (UAE-Team Emirates) with ease. Lotto-Soudal’s Caleb Ewan finished fast to just pip Peter Sagan (BORA-hansgrohe) to third place. After helping deliver his teammate over the line, Julian Alaphilipppe followed him onto the podium to pull on the yellow jersey once more.
It was the opening stages of the 2019 Giro d’Italia and the Twitterstream turned pink. We had time trials, trash talk, sprint relegations, duelling roommates, Peter Sagan‘s new hair, a sewing Cancellara and oh so much more! This baby is PACKED TO THE GILLS!
