A Long Time Coming TDF19-49
Daryl Impey (Dimension Data) clearly had the legs after 170.5 kilometers to take out the sprint. Impey has worn the Maillot Jaune for two days in years past, but this is his first stage win in the Tour de France. The French will have to consul themselves with a Maillot Jaune, but no stage win on Bastille Day. Behind the South African Champion was a clearly exhausted Tiesj Benoot (Lotto Soudal). Both climbed up the general classification with the top of the GC coming in a full sixteen minutes after this pair crossed the line in Brioude.
