Our final Tour Tweets of the Week for 2020 and we look back on a weekend that had thrills and chills, shocks and Champs.
It was an amazing Tour de France for all kinds of reasons. And, to be honest, one of the most tense. Some stages just felt like something was brewing … other stages it all kicked off big time. Today, Tadej Pogacar officially won the 2020 Tour de France, along with the KOM and young rider’s jersey. And Sam Bennett sealed a great TdF for himself with a win – in the green jersey – on the Champs. Chapeau, guys!
A DRAMATIC stage 20 of the Tour de France saw Tadej Pogacar (UAE -Team Emirates) ride an extraordinary time trial to snatch the yellow jersey from the shoulders of an out-of-sorts Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma). Such was the calibre of his outstanding TT that the young Slovenian also secured the polka dots from Richard Carapaz (INEOS Grenadiers) to add to his best young rider jersey. The fact that he also claimed the stage victory from Tom Dumoulin (Jumbo-Visma) seems almost superfluous to the story! Trek-Segafredo’s Richie Porte rode out of his skin to claim the third step of the podium from Astana’s Miguel Angel Lopez. HOLY WOW what a stage!
