Surprising Even Himself TDU19-7
While a massive crash with just a couple of hundred of meters to go certainly changed the nature of the final sprint, it was still a surprise to see Paddy Bevin (CCC) raise his arms in victory. Behind the New Zealander where some marquee sprinters including Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Danny van Poppel (Jumbo-Visma). With yesterday's stage winner, and leader on GC, Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick Step) finishing seventh today, Bevin will change his orange team jersey for the Ochre jersey of overall race leader. Viviani drops to second by five seconds, with Caleb Ewan slotting in at third just eleven seconds behind.
