Do You Have the Legs? PN20-3
Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) and Tiesj Benoot (Sunweb) had sprinted it out for the bonus seconds of the first intermediate sprint. While Alaphilippe had won the sprint, the pair found themselves with a small gap over the other fourteen from the leading group. The Frenchman convinced Benoot to continue the effort with just 26 kilometers left to race back to Plaiser. They had opened up thirty seconds on those behind. A move akin to what but Alaphilippe into Yellow in the 2019 Tour de France. Will it work again?
