Two More Coming PN20-4
With just four kilometers left to race, Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) looks over his shoulder to see that two more riders have leapt out of the chasing group in an attempt to bridge across to him and Tiesj Benoot (Sunweb). Leading the charge is the German National Champion, Maximilian Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) with Dylan Teuns (Bahrain McLaren) glued to his wheel. It will vastly increase the chances of staying off the front to the line, but now one of the four will not be on the podium for the stage. Conversely, one of the four will be pulling on the Yellow Jersey of race leader in four kilometers' time.
