Kicking into Overdrive PN20-9
It look like the stage was going to belong to Pascal Ackerman (Bora-Hansgrohe) then a very patient Giacomo Nizzolo (NTT Pro Cycling) found his over drive and sprinted away from the bunch. Behind the Italian, it was Nils Politt (Israel Start Up Nation) and Alex Kirsch (Trek-Segafredo) seemingly watching the stage slip through their fingered gloves. You might notice that there isn't a big crowd of cheering cycling fans along the barriers. With the threat of the coronavirus growing in Europe, large gatherings are now banned in France so the finish line was barred to spectators.
