Tour de France

Tour de france stage 16: philipsen pummels everyone as cavendish misses chance in final tour sprint, no fairytale finish for cavendish in last tour de france sprint before retirement, girmay crashes in final to blow green jersey battle wide open..

Don't miss a moment of the 2024 Tour de France! Get recaps, insights, and exclusive takes with Velo's daily newsletter. >","name":"in-content-cta","type":"link"}}'>Sign up today! .

Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) roared off his teammate Mathieu van der Poel’s wheel Tuesday to score his third sprint victory of this Tour de France .

Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) finished second in the Tour’s 16th stage, with Alexander Kristoff (Uno-X Mobility) in third.

With no Paris finale on the menu for this year’s Tour de France, Tuesday’s charge into downtown Nîmes made for the last-chance saloon in the wild west of bunch sprinters.

Mark Cavendish (Astana Qazaqstan) was out of position through the high-speed finish into the city and was way out of the wheels to contest for a 36th victory in what was likely the last Tour sprint of his legendary career.

Race-leader Tadej Pogačar (UAE Emirates) and his closest rivals all coasted to the line safe, meaning there were no major changes on GC as the race heads toward its endgame in the high Alps.

After a slow start to the race, Belgian rocketship Philipsen has blazed through the back-end of the race with three wins in seven stages.

Philipsen’s third win Tuesday was emphatic, riding everyone off his wheel.

“I was feeling good, and I had a good rest day. I was feeling that my shape was improving in this Tour, and I was confident that if we could line it up today we could win,” he said at the finish.

“Every stage is hard at this level, so to take three is a really good job, and we can be proud,” Philipsen said.

Green jersey leader Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty) was caught in a crash 1,300m from the line and came to the finish looking rocked as his maillot vert defense dangled in peril.

The Eritrean star lost points to Philipsen at both the intermediate kick and again at the line in Nîmes, meaning the gap between the two is down to just 32 as the race tilts into its mountain-packed final week.

“Everything is possible, but it’s going to be difficult,” Philipsen said of winning his second straight maillot vert . “Girmay is climbing really well. I just hope he is OK after the crash, he doesn’t deserve to lose like this.

“I’ll just try whatever I can because there are hard stages to come,” Philipsen continued. “We go day by day but mostly we enjoy this win.”

Girmay crossed the line with two teammates after he and a handful of EF Education-EasyPost riders came down as the peloton roared through a roundabout. He appeared unhurt, though there has not yet been any official confirmation from his team.

“It’s a pity there was a crash. It doesn’t change anything, because Jasper had to go for the win,” Alpecin Deceuninck director Philip Roodhooft told reporters at the line.

“It makes a big difference for the green jersey, the battle is more open than we expected,” he said. “We will do everything to try to get that one in Nice.”

Snoozer across the south coast

kristoff tour de france

The peloton didn’t want to click out of “rest day mode” Tuesday as it faced up to a third week loaded with high Alpine climbs and a brutally tough final TT.

Even the threat of crosswinds couldn’t create any enthusiasm, and next to nothing happened for the first 100km of Tuesday’s sun-baked stage along the French south coast.

The bunch awoke from its early siesta at the intermediate sprint point as the fast-finishers jousted for points needed to contest the green jersey ranking podium positions.

Bryan Coquard (Cofidis) won the prime, with Girmay kicking across the line in fourth.

Philipsen was second to the intermediate, which when combined with the 50 points he earned for stage victory, puts the Belgian right back into contention in the race for the maillot vert .

The stage’s lone breakaway victim Thomas Gachignard (TotalEnergies) went away soon after the mid-stage sprint, and he was left to baste all the way into the final few kilometers into Nîmes.

From there, it was a countdown to the bunch sprint.

Only a wild close call at around 30km interrupted the waiting game.

A Uno-X Mobility car pacing Johannes Kulset sped the wrong way around a roundabout and nearly T-boned its second team vehicle in a brief raising of the pulse in an otherwise slow-motion stage at Le Tour .

The last action point of the day came at around 1,300m to go when cameras captured the aftermath of a crash involving Girmay and a trio from EF Education-EasyPost.

From there, it was the MVDP-Philipsen show.

Up next: A big chance for the break ahead of the yellow jersey endgame Alps

kristoff tour de france

The sprinters sure won’t see another chance Wednesday.

Stage 17 up to SuperDévoluy packs some 3,000m into a grueling 180km stage backloaded with a Cat.2 and Cat.1 climb ahead of a summit finish on the grinder Cat.3 up to SuperDévoluy.

If Pogačar and the GC teams want to resume hostilities before the high Alps arrive on Friday, stage 17 offers good opportunity.

Otherwise, expect the breakaway specialists to be making moves in one of their very last chances of this Tour de France. Here’s looking at you, Ben Healy, Matej Mohorič, Wout Poels, and Co.

Alexander kristoff wins first stage of tour de france full of crashes.

  • OlympicTalk ,
  • OlympicTalk

Norwegian Alexander Kristoff sprinted into the Tour de France yellow jersey, winning the opening stage in Nice of the Grand Tour that started two months later than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I always dreamed about wearing the yellow jersey,” he said. “I crashed also in the European Championships a few days ago, straight on my head, so I was a bit banged up. But that didn’t affect me today.”

Kristoff, 33, earned his fourth career Tour stage win, edging world road race champion Mads Pedersen of Denmark in a bunched sprint.

It came on a rainy day filled with crashes involving French favorites Thibaut Pinot and Julian Alaphilippe , who finished in the same time as the other overall favorites.

The Tour continues with a mountainous stage two on Sunday, also in Nice. Coverage begins at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Gold.

The Tour started amid the coronavirus “gaining ground” in France, France’s prime minister said Thursday.

The government announced 21 of its 101 administrative regions, including Nice, were now in the “red zone” where the virus is actively circulating and authorities can impose stricter rules on gatherings. Masks were required for everyone in Paris starting Friday, ahead of schools reopening next week.

Tour riders and staff are in a moving bubble, which required two negative tests to start the three-week Grand Tour. An entire team will be sent home if two riders or staff test positive within a seven-day span. Teams must be tested on Tour rest days Sept. 7 and Sept. 14.

There are 22 squads of eight riders competing at the Tour, but a total of 30 members per team when staff are included.

Tour organizers set up a mobile coronavirus lab that can produce results in two hours and handle 50 tests a day on race days.

“It’s a first miracle that we are able to start this race, but we want a second miracle to happen, which is the Tour de France to arrive in Paris,” UCI president David Lappartient said. “The goal is really to reach Paris.”

Tour de France standings, results after Jasper Philipsen wins Stage 16

The importance of teamwork took center stage at the 2024 Tour de France as Belgium’s Jasper Philipsen of Alpecin-Deceuninck won Stage 16 in a sprint finish behind the efforts of teammate Mathieu van der Poel. 

After a rest day Monday, the Tour continued Tuesday with Stage 16, a flat 117-mile ride in hot and windy conditions from Gruissan to Nîmes. The last flat stage of the Tour, Stage 16 marked the last opportunity for the sprinters to claim glory. 

Philipsen did just that. In the last few hundred meters of the race, Van der Poel flawlessly executed a classic lead-out, seizing control with Philipsen on his wheel. With Van der Poel’s help out front, Philipsen accelerated to outpace Phil Bauhaus of Bahrain Victorious and Alexander Kristoff of Uno-X Mobility.

"I'm really happy after such a team effort," Philipsen said after his win. "It's always nice when you can win together."

Today’s victory marks Philipsen's third Tour stage win of the year and the ninth of his career. The Belgian had a slow start to the Tour but has turned his fortunes around since winning Stage 10 .  Philipsen has now won half of the stages of the last week. 

The race for the green jersey (points classification) also heats up with Tuesday's results as Eritrea’s Biniam Girmay of Intermarché-Wanty crashed at high speed in the final meters of the race. Girmay has had a breakout Tour, winning three previous sprint stages and making history as the first Black African rider to win a Tour de France stage. 

The extent of Girmay’s injuries is not yet known, but the green jersey wearer got back on his bike with visible cuts up his arm and leg and was able to finish the race flanked by two of his teammates. 

"I just hope (Biniam’s) okay after the crash because he doesn’t deserve to lose like this," Philipsen said.

Girmay led Philipsen by 86 points before Stage 16, but his lead has now narrowed to 32 points, increasing the stakes of the intermediate sprints during future stages. 

"I will just try what I can but hard stages are yet to come, so we go day by day but we also mostly enjoy this win," Philipsen said of his chances of winning the green jersey. 

The general classification standings remain unchanged. This Tour is still Team UAE Emirates’ Tadej Pogačar ’s to lose as the 25-year-old Slovenian maintains his strong position heading into the final week of racing. Today’s stage marked Pogačar’s 100th day of his career racing the Tour de France and, highlighting his dominance , his 34th wearing the yellow jersey.

Alexander Kristoff wins first stage of Tour de France

  • Associated Press

NICE, France -- Delayed but alive again and out on French roads, the strangest Tour de France ever set off Saturday in a bubble of anti-COVID protocols to try to keep the 176 riders virus-free for three weeks of racing through the country's worsening epidemic.

Only after riders peeled off their face masks and raced off from the start in the Mediterranean city of Nice, serenaded by a uniformed band playing "La Marseillaise," did the Tour begin to look like its old, pre-COVID self, immediately delivering thrills and spills as storms made the roads as slippery as ice.

But with fans kept firmly at arm's length, told by the government that it was best to stay home and watch the racing on television, the Tour lost much of its festive atmosphere. There was very little of the usual up-close communing between athletes and their adoring public that made the venerable 117-year-old rolling roadshow so unique among sports events in more carefree times.

Powering past thin crowds on the finishing straight in Nice that would usually have been crammed with spectators rows deep, Norwegian rider Alexander Kristoff won the first stage with a fearsome final sprint. He celebrated by giving a COVID-sensible fist-bump to a teammate.

Winning Stage 1 earned Kristoff the first yellow jersey of the 2020 Tour, which he will wear as the race leader on Sunday's Stage 2 that loops into the mountains behind Nice. Usually, a race official or a VIP would have helped him slip into the iconic jersey, one of the most coveted and recognizable in sports. But not this year, with social distancing the priority.

Kristoff stood alone on the winner's podium, flanked by a host and a hostess a safe distance away. He then disappeared backstage to wriggle into the jersey himself, before coming back out to pose for photos. Still, the thrill of wearing the jersey for the first time in his eight Tours more than outweighed the weirdness.

"An amazing feeling," he told reporters at the finish. "It means a lot for my career and a stage win shows I can still be up there even at 33 years old and with four kids."

With infections rising steadily across France, the Tour has no guarantees of reaching the finish in Paris on Sept. 20. Riders will have daily health checks and coronavirus tests during the race, and can be tossed out if they fail them. Entire teams could be sent home if two or more riders or staff test positive for COVID-19 within a week. Fans have been told not to approach riders for selfies or autographs and to always wear masks.

Jean-Michel Blanquer, the French minister in charge of sports, was upbeat at the start Saturday, saying the Tour has only a "very slim" chance of being canceled before Paris but also cautioning that "everything is possible."

"That type of thing could happen but of course I hope that it won't and I think that it won't because the Tour organizers have done an extraordinary job," he said.

Fans who have waited for Tour action to resume, after the race was pushed back from July, were rewarded with high drama on the 156-kilometer (97-mile) first stage that did three loops around Nice and hilly backcountry to the city's north. Rain storms turned the tarmac so slick that riders eventually made a pact between themselves out on the road to dial back the pace after multiple crashes.

Among the most dramatic was Colombian rider Miguel Angel Lopez skidding headfirst into a road sign. He labored on to the finish. Another crash took out a heap of riders in the dash to the line on Nice's splendid seafront.

"People were crashing almost on every corner," said Kristoff. "It was really slippy out there."

Alexander Kristoff: 'I'm 33 and have four kids but still managed to win'

The Norwegian says he'll enjoy his day in yellow after a surprise stage victory

If Alexander Kristoff does the school run at the speed he showed on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice at the end of stage one of the Tour de France , it's unlikely his kids have ever been late.

The Norwegian seemed almost surprised that he outclassed rivals such as Sam Bennett (Deceuninck - Quick-Step), Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Elia Viviani (Cofidis) to take the first yellow jersey and his fourth French Grand Tour stage win.

"I'm 33 years old and have four kids but I still managed to win the biggest race in the world so it gives hope for everyone," Kristoff said after the finish. "The first stage in the Tour...it couldn't start better, and the yellow jersey is a bonus, [I'm wearing it for the] first time in my career.

"I'm proud and humbled, I will enjoy it tomorrow. I guess I will lose it but I will enjoy the day riding in it."

The finale looked like it was shaping up for Sam Bennett to take a first yellow jersey for Ireland since Stephen Roche in 1987, but Kristoff proved to have the freshest legs after a stressful, crash-marred day to power across the line first.

"I knew I was going to be alone in the sprint [without team-mates], that was clear, and I know a guy who's really good alone is Peter Sagan, so I stayed on his wheel," the UAE Team Emirates rider explained.

"Then I saw Cees Bol had some team-mates and he started early so it was a good lead-out for me, then I had good legs and went out from his wheel and then in the last 50 metres I was quite confident I would take it.

"I can't quite describe the feeling. I was feeling good in the sprint training [before the Tour] so hopefully I can take more stages later on."

Kristoff had apparently turned up to the Critérium du Dauphiné and taken one look at the roadbook before realising there weren't any flat stages to compete in. Instead, he struggled through five mountainous days before missing the time cut on the final stage.

He says the Dauphiné, therefore, offered his a "suffer camp" to prepare for the Tour, and that he won't go out of his way to compete with Sagan for the green jersey, but will contest the intermediate sprints to keep his legs fresh for other stage opportunities later in the race.

"I've never been close to winning the green jersey because Peter has been quite far away, there's always a lot of points between us," Kristoff admitted. "But this is a special Tour and a lot can happen. I'll try and get points, not necessarily for the green jersey, but to prepare for the sprints later on, to practice."

As well as other potential stage victories, Kristoff's main objectives are the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix in October. In this strange season, the strongman Norwegian may yet outlast his opponents and mop up more victories than anyone would have believed he could at the start of the year.

Tour de France 2024 mit großem Ärger: „Das war kriminell“

kristoff tour de france

Großer Ärger nach Tour-Sprint : „Das war kriminell“

Biniam Girmay gewinnt die zwölfte Etappe, Pascal Ackermann (Zweiter von links) schimpft.

Pascal Ackermann schlug verärgert auf seinen Lenker. Eingeklemmt in einem hektischen Finale auf der zwölften Etappe verpasste der Pfälzer als Vierter seinen ersten Tagessieg bei der Tour de France. „Wir waren perfekt positioniert. Es war alles richtig geil. Als wir losfahren wollten, ist Kristoff rechts rübergefahren (...) zum Glück sind wir nicht gestürzt“, haderte Ackermann in der ARD über den norwegischen Altmeister Alexander Kristoff und forderte dessen Disqualifikation: „Das war kriminell.“ 

Den Sieg holte sich nach 203,6 Kilometern in Villeneuve-sur-Lot stattdessen abermals Biniam Girmay aus Eritrea. Der Mann im Grünen Trikot siegte vor dem Belgier Wout van Aert und dem Franzosen Arnaud Demare.

Roglič stürzt kurz vor dem Ziel

Der große Verlierer des Tages war aber Mitfavorit Primož Roglič aus dem deutschen Red-Bull-Team. Durch einen Sturz zehn Kilometer vor dem Ziel verlor der Slowene mehr als zwei Minuten und liegt nun im Kampf gegen seine großen Konkurrenten um den Gesamtführenden Tadej Pogacar und Titelverteidiger Jonas Vingegaard deutlich im Hintertreffen. Roglič rutschte auf Platz sechs ab mit einem Rückstand von nun 4:42 Minuten auf Pogacar. Der vom Team erhoffte Tour-Sieg rückt immer weiter in die Ferne. 

„Es herrscht eine sehr gedrückte Stimmung. Primož war hier mit großen Ambitionen. Jetzt ist er zweimal hintereinander gestürzt – heute schwer“, sagte Rolf Aldag, Sportdirektor des Teams: „Es macht momentan noch keinen Sinn drüber nachzudenken, wie es weiter geht.“

Pogacar liegt in der Gesamtwertung weiter 1:06 Minuten vor dem belgischen Zeitfahr-Weltmeister Remco Evenepoel. Dritter ist 1:14 Minuten zurück Titelverteidiger Jonas Vingegaard.

Der Massensturz passierte knapp zehn Kilometer vor dem Ziel, gerade als sich die Sprinter-Teams formierten. Erst stürzte ein Astana-Fahrer. Roglič hatte Pech, dass er unmittelbar dahinter postiert war. Seine Teamkollegen versuchten noch, ihn wieder ranzubringen – ohne Erfolg.

Einen Tag nach der kräftezehrenden Kletterpartie im Zentralmassiv machten den Fahrern zusätzlich die hohen Temperaturen zu schaffen. Der niederländische Sprinter Fabio Jakobsen musste aufgeben. Zunächst blieb der Grund dafür unklar. Der 27 Jahre alte einmalige Tour-Etappensieger, der schon im vergangenen Jahr nach Teilstück zwölf Au Revoir sagen musste, fiel am Donnerstag zurück und verabschiedete sich knapp 180 Kilometer vor dem Ziel von der Rundfahrt.

65 Kilometer später stieg der Spanier Pello Bilbao schweren Herzens vom Rad. Der Teamkollege von Sprinter Phil Bauhaus und Nikias Arndt hatte vergangenes Jahr seine erste Tour-Etappe gewonnen. Sein Team teilte auf „X“ mit, dass er sich bereits am Vortag nicht gut gefühlt habe. 

Cavendish-Helfer muss aufgeben

Vor der Etappe gab es schon das Tour-Aus eines bekannten Fahrers. Der Däne Michael Morkov aus dem Rennstall um Sprint-Idol Mark Cavendish gab als erster Fahrer bei der diesjährigen Landesrundfahrt wegen einer Corona-Infektion auf. Laut seinem Astana-Team war der 39 Jahre alte Top-Anfahrer von Cavendish positiv getestet worden, er habe aber keine schweren Symptome. Für den erfahrenen Rennfahrer endet damit seine letzte Frankreich-Rundfahrt vorzeitig.

„Es schützt alle anderen Fahrer“, lobte Cavendish die Maßnahme seines Teams bei Eurosport. „Ich weiß, dass es Fahrer gibt, die mit Corona bei der Tour fahren“, sagte der Brite, der in diesem Jahr mit seinem 35. Etappensieg einen Tour-Rekord aufgestellt hat. Corona spielte bislang eher eine untergeordnete Rolle. Bei der Tour selbst gibt es gegen das Virus keine Schutzmaßnahmen mehr. Einige Teams tragen allerdings weiter Masken. 

Vor dem Auftakt der Tour in Florenz präsentierte sich Remco Evenepoel mit Maske. Tadej Pogacar war in der Vorbereitung an Corona erkrankt. Der zweimalige Tour-de-France-Sieger erlebte aber nach eigener Aussage einen milden Verlauf der Infektion. Titelverteidiger Jonas Vingegaard muss auf seinen Edel-Helfer Sepp Kuss verzichten, der wegen Corona nicht teilnehmen konnte. 

Vor dem anspruchsvollen Wochenende in den Pyrenäen erwarten die Profis am Freitag weitestgehend flache 165,3 Kilometer zwischen Agen und Pau. Hierbei bekommen die Sprinter wohl ihre vorletzte Chance bei der diesjährigen Tour.

Tour de France Stage 16: Jasper Philipsen Sprints to His Third Stage Victory

The Alpecin-Deceuninck rider claimed his third stage win, capitalizing on a chaotic sprint finish marred by a crash involving top contender Biniam Girmay.

Stage Winner: Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) GC Leader: Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates)

Tuesday’s Stage 16 snaked 188.6 kilometers across the South of France from Gruissan to Nîmes, featuring one intermediate sprint segment and a lone Category 4 climb. The rest of the stage was lake-flat.

But that doesn’t mean it was a Sunday cruise, as strong winds battered the riders throughout the day. It was also hot, nearing ninety degrees, which meant that the peloton spent much of the day at a reasonable pace, with nary a breakaway to be found.

topshot cycling tdf 2024 stage16

The day’s first punches were thrown some four kilometers from the intermediate sprint when Biniam Girmay’s Intermarché-Wanty teammates organized by the righthand side of the road. However, Philipsen’s Alpecin-Deceuninck teammates quickly formed their own leadout train, boxing Girmay in by the side of the road.

Ultimately, Cofidis’s Bryan Coquard edged them both for the twenty points on offer.

Immediately after, the day’s first real move took shape as TotalEnergies’ Thomas Gachignardwent off the front alone, eventually building up a lead of two and a half minutes. Shortly after Gachignar crossed the day’s only climb, the Côte de Fambetou, alone, a handful of Jayco AlUlariders led the chase to close his gap. The peloton caught and swallowed up Gachignard, with twenty-five kilometers left to race.

The last few miles of the day wound through a series of roundabouts and hard turns as the teams organized for the day’s final sprint.

Intermarche was obvious at the front, hoping to deliver Girmay. Beside them, Team Uno-X Mobility took to the left side of the road, setting up their leadout for Kristoff. Meanwhile, de Lie and Philipsen were nowhere to be found until both teams suddenly took form with two kilometers to go.

Girmay was caught up in a crash with just under a kilometer to go, meaning he would get no points in his chase for the green jersey . At the front, Mathieu van der Poel led Philipsenperfectly to a strong win with no true contesters. That win, paired with Girmay’s misfortune, was a perfect storm for Philipsen, drawing him within thirty-two points of the green jersey.

Bauhaus finished second, and Kristoff rounded out the day’s podium.

“I’m really happy, definitely after such a team effort,” Philipsen said after winning his third stage of this year’s Tour. “It’s always nice when you can win together.”

Asked what he thought of his prospects for the green jersey in light of Girmay’s crash, Philipsen added, “Everything is possible, but it’s really hard. (Girmay) is climbing well. I hope he’s okay after the crash. He doesn’t deserve to lose like this.”

Kristoff: 2019 Tour de France may have been my last

Norwegian says being 'slightly too heavy' helped in Classics but that team errors saw him gain 6kg in first week of Tour

kristoff tour de france

Alexander Kristoff will shake off seven years' worth of habit in 2020 as he skips the Tour de France for the first time since 2012 and returns to the Giro d’Italia.

The Norwegian enjoyed a strong 2019 season, winning his first major spring Classic since 2015 at Gent-Wevelgem, as well as winning six other races and finishing on the podium of the Tour of Flanders.

However, despite signing a new two-year contract with UAE Team Emirates , the 32-year-old has found his options limited in 2020, as Fernando Gaviria is the favoured sprinter for the Tour, while Tadej Pogacar and Fabio Aru go for the overall title.

"It's not 100 per cent ideal," Kristoff told Cyclingnews at a recent team training camp in Spain, trying to find the positives.

Change in sports drink blamed for UAE's poor Tour de France performance

Kristoff extends contract with UAE Team Emirates

Katusha-Alpecin say Kristoff is 'too heavy'

"I've never had a summer vacation as long as I've had kids – the whole summer it's always been 'daddy's in France' - so it will be nice to spend some time with them over the summer.

"I hope I'll do the Tour again in the future, but you never know. Maybe I've done my last Tour. I'm starting to get older. Still, I hope I have a chance to go back."

Racing the Giro leaves Kristoff with a tricky balancing act, given he'll want to be in top shape for the spring Classics, beginning with Milan-San Remo on March 22 and ending with Paris-Roubaix on April 12.

After starting his 2020 season on the Iberian peninsula at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, Clásica de Almería, and Volta ao Algarve, Kristoff will head to the so-called 'opening weekend' in Belgium for a taste of the Classics before Paris-Nice takes him into the proper spring period. 

"It's difficult to balance being in shape for the Giro if you want to be in shape from San Remo to Roubaix. It's less than one month, so there's not really time to start the Giro in top shape," he said.

"I will not compromise – I'll focus everything on the Classics, and if I do well there, my season is already good, and we'll see how it goes in the Giro. I'm motivated to do the Giro, and I'll try and come back into shape in the short time.

"Maybe I'll just have a few days rest after the Classics before building up to the Giro. There's a limit to how much you can lose in one month. If I can have one or two good days, that would be enough."

Gaining 6kg in the first week of the Tour

If the 2019 Tour does indeed turn out to be Kristoff's last, he will have ended on a bitter note. After a strong spring and decent latter part of the season, the Tour was the major area of disappointment last year.

It was a major disappointment for UAE Team Emirates as a whole, as each rider underperformed, with rumours circulating that a change in sports drink had caused the riders to absorb too much water. 

Kristoff acknowledged that was part of the problem but that there were wider reasons the riders were overweight, as he revealed he gained nearly six kilograms in the first week.

"There are many things that happened. Ultimately, the whole squad was too heavy. I maybe started the Tour at 77.9kg and after a few days I was close to 84kg. Then it's difficult to perform," he said. 

Kristoff at the 2019 Tour de France

"I think the problem was that we got too much energy. It's maybe hard to believe, but some days are not so hard, and if you eat or drink too much you can actually get too many calories. The body absorbed a lot of water, and we gained some kilos there, but we also got some kilos of extra fat because we were eating too much.

"We were maybe not monitored enough but the doctors think they have the reasons and the solutions. The team saw what happened and worked on it and already the team performed very well in the Vuelta. The team has hired a new nutritionist, who gives us more advice on what to do at home, and during the races we'll be monitored more than before. It was a one-time mistake and for sure we won't make the same mistake this year."

More weight but more gas

Kristoff has often faced question marks over his weight, with his old team, Katusha-Alpecin, telling him he was 'too heavy' in 2017. Yet, somewhat perversely in a sport where being light is given such importance, Kristoff believes being 'slightly too heavy' was one of the factors behind his 2019 spring success. 

"I was more skinny in 2018 and I maybe felt lighter in the races but in the end I was empty. In 2019 I was more heavy and maybe suffering more during the races, but at the end I still had some gas," he said. 

"There's always a fine balance – if you're too light you can lose power. Maybe this year I was slightly too heavy, but I also had enough energy to handle it."

That's exactly what happened when he won a particularly frantic edition of Gent-Wevelgem, attacking ahead of the Kemmelberg to ensure his place in a group sprint for victory. 

"At the start of that race, I did not feel good, but by the end I had a good feeling," he said. 

Kristoff wins Gent-Wevelgem in 2019

A week later, Kristoff finished third at the Tour of Flanders – his first Monument podium since he won that same race back in 2015.

"Those two races gave me confidence I can still perform at the top level. I’ve had some high places but the podiums had been missing. Those are the feelings you chase as a pro," he said. 

"I always knew that, if everything went the right way, I could make it, but the last years it wasn’t really there. This year, I had that one small extra gear that made me able to follow the strongest guys again, so that gave me confidence, and I hope I’m on the same level this year."

As for whether he can win another Monument: "I believe it's possible. I know I have good endurance. If I manage to survive the hard parts, maybe one hour from the finish, and it comes together, then I have a great chance."

Jasper Philipsen wins stage 16 of Tour de France while Tadej Pogačar retains yellow jersey

Sport Jasper Philipsen wins stage 16 of Tour de France while Tadej Pogačar retains yellow jersey

Cyclist Jasper Philipsen takes off his sunglass and is jubilant after winning a stage of the Tour de France, surrounded by media

Jasper Philipsen has won his third stage of this year's Tour de France, claiming stage 16 in a sprint finish.

In the race for the points classification, Philipsen has narrowed his deficit to Biniam Girmay down to 32 points, after Girmay crashed late.

What's next?

Wednesday's stage 17 is a 178km ride from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Superdevoluy.

Jasper Philipsen has sprinted to victory as his team Alpecin-Deceuninck has timed its lead-out to perfection during Tuesday's 16th stage of the Tour de France, a 189-kilometre flat ride from Gruissan to Nimes.

The win was Philipsen's third on the Tour this year after victories on stages 10 and 13. Green jersey holder Biniam Girmay, who has also won three stages, crashed in the final 2km.

Slovenia's Tadej Pogačar retained his yellow jersey with a lead of 3 minutes and 9 seconds over Jonas Vingegaard in the general classification while Remco Evenepoel remains over 5 minutes behind.

Alpecin-Deceuninck controlled the sprint as the riders moved up to the front to set up the victory for Philipsen and it worked to perfection as Mathieu Van der Poel's textbook lead-out allowed his Belgian teammate to win comfortably.

"I'm really happy after such a team effort. It's always nice when you can win together and that's what we did today, definitely," Philipsen said.

"I didn't see the crash [involving Girmay]. We were trying to position ourselves and focus on our own lead-out. I hope everyone is OK.

"I was feeling good, I had a good rest day [on Monday]. My shape improved during the Tour so I was confident if we could line it up good today, we could go for the win. 

"It's a difficult level, so three wins is good. We can be proud."

Philipsen crossed the line ahead of Phil Bauhaus, Alex Kristoff and Sam Bennett.

Girmay eventually got back on his bike and his teammates helped him across the line. But the Eritrean saw his lead in the sprint standings reduced to 32 points.

While there are no more flat stages on the Tour, the green jersey is still very much up for grabs, with intermediate sprints in the next five stages.

"Everything is possible. He (Girmay) is climbing really well," Philipsen added.

"I hope he's OK after the crash because he doesn't deserve to lose like this. I will try whatever I can because the hard stages are to come."

Britain's Mark Cavendish, who has won a record 35 stages on the Tour in his career, finished 17th in potentially his final sprint stage.

Wednesday's stage 17 is a 178 km ride from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Superdevoluy.

Kristoff and Thomas share the honours in Paris

European champion Alexander Kristoff won the conclusive stage of the 105th Tour de France on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, the second success for UAE Team Emirates after super combative Dan Martin took stage 6 in Mûr-de-Bretagne. It’s Kristoff’s third victory after two stages in 2014. Geraint Thomas claimed his first overall victory while Tom Dumoulin and Chris Froome rounded out the podium.

145 riders started stage 21 in Houilles. In the first kilometres covered on a slow motion, Team Sky celebrated their probable sixth overall victory in seven years. As the race entered Paris throughout the famous avenue Montaigne, the street of fashion, Sylvain Chavanel (Direct Energie) did a lap of honour as this was his 18th and last Tour de France. After setting this all-time record, the Frenchman decided to retire at the end of the season. Silvan Dillier (AG2R-La Mondiale), Taylor Phinney (EF), Michael Schär (BMC), Damien Gaudin (Direct Energie), Nils Politt (Katusha-Alpecin) and Guillaume van Keirsbulck (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) rode away from the pack with 52km to go.

Lampaert the last attacker to surrender

Groupama-FDJ and Bora-Hansgrohe were the most active teams in the chase. The deficit of the peloton was 40’’ with 20km to go. It was game over for the breakaway riders 6km before the end as Politt was the last man to surrender at bell lap. Marco Marcato (UAE Team Emirates) rode away from the peloton 2.5km before the line to force the other sprinters’ teams to spend some energy before the last rush. Daniel Oss (Bora-Hansgrohe) countered but Belgian champion Yves Lampaert (Quick Step) was the last man to try and stay away from the pack. He was eventually swallowed with 250 metres to go, firstly by Trek-Segafredo working for stage 9 winner John Degenkolb but Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) was the fastest of the remaining sprinters while stage 18 winner Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) rounded out the stage podium. Geraint Thomas could raise his hands up in the air too as he definitely won the 105th Tour de France.

Tour de France : insatiable, le Belge Jasper Philipsen remporte sa troisième victoire

Et de trois ! Le Belge Jasper Philipsen s'est adjugé sa troisième victoire dans cette 111e édition du Tour de France en remportant la 16e étape au sprint, mardi à Nîmes. Au classement général, le Slovène Tadej Pogacar conserve le maillot jaune avec une confortable avance sur le Danois Jonas Vingegaard.

Publié le : 16/07/2024 - 18:34

Après une journée de repos pour les coureurs, le Belge Jasper Philipsen a remporté sa troisième victoire dans ce Tour de France en enlevant la 16e étape au sprint, mardi 16 juillet à Nîmes. Il s'est imposé devant l'Allemand Phil Bauhaus, qui collectionne les places d'honneur, et le Norvégien Alexander Kristoff.

Le Slovène Tadej Pogacar conserve le maillot jaune avec 3 minutes et 9 secondes d'avance sur le Danois Jonas Vingegaard et 5 minutes et 19 secondes sur le Belge Remco Evenepoel à l'issue d'une journée courue sous une forte chaleur.

"Les victoires sont dures à avoir sur le Tour de France. Trois victoires, c'est un très bon résultat", a sobrement commenté Jasper Philipsen, qui garde une petite chance de gagner le maillot vert, celui du meilleur sprinteur.

Avec cette victoire nîmoise, le Belge compte désormais autant de victoires sur cette édition du Tour  que Biniam Girmay , qui n'a cette fois pas pu se mêler au sprint à cause d'une chute à 1,5 kilomètres de l'arrivée.

L'Érythréen, qui reste premier du classement du maillot vert avec 376 points, a franchi la ligne un peu plus tard, visiblement pas trop touché.

Thomas Gachignard s'échappe... avant d'être repris

Pour le dernier sprint de sa carrière sur le Tour de France, le vétéran britannique Mark Cavendish, qui avait porté le record de victoires d'étape à 35 en début de Tour , a pris la 17e place.

L'étape, plate, aurait pu être propice aux bordures en cas de vent mais ça n'a pas soufflé assez fort mardi pour épicer les débats.

Le Français Thomas Gachignard (TotalEnergies) s'est illustré en partant seul en échappée pour s'assurer le Prix de combatif du jour avant d'être repris à 25 kilomètres de l'arrivée.

Le peloton s'est alors animé, soudain énervé comme s'il avait piétiné un nid de frelons, dans des traversées de villages semées d'embûches sous forme de ronds-points et îlots directionnels.

Deux voitures Uno-X ont même failli se percuter en tentant de remonter leur coureur Johannes Kulset, victime d'un incident mécanique.
