Tour de France – Stage 5: Chaos on the cobbles: The drama surrounding Primoz Roglic, Tadig Pojaccar scores

The Australian of Team Israel – Premier Tech prevailed in a very tight race of the last split ahead of Taco van der Horn (Netherlands) and Norway’s Edvald Boasson Hagen.

But Pogacar was the second big winner of the day, finishing seventh (+0:51sec) at the end of Arenberg, extending his lead over all his top competitors and, ideally, fourth overall (+0:19). I’m waiting.

The top Germans are Max Walshed and Maximilian Schachmann in 12th and 13th (+1:04min), and Jonas Weinggaard, who was defending the yellow jersey, also reached his group, 13 seconds ahead of Pojjar, despite the misfortune with faults.

John Degenkolb was unable to continue his cobblestone days. “I look forward to this stage with great anticipation,” said the man from Jira. In 2015 he was one of only two German drivers (along with Joseph Fischer / 1896) who owned a classic Paris-Roubaix and three years later he did too Won the Tour stage in Roubaix. In the peloton, Degenkolb traveled over the pavé strip, for which he is named.

Nils Politt, the runner-up for the Rubiks in 2019, showed a very solid performance and worked admirably for his captain Vlasov.

After a hard day off-road, the tour continues south, and the tension doesn’t get any easier. The sixth and longest section on Thursday leads 219.9 km from Binche in Belgium to the steep finish at Longwy, before finishing the first mountain on Friday at Planche des Belles Filles.
