Another Bianchi show, Groenewegen wins Tour de France stage 7


Jumbo-Visma Dutchman rode Oltre XR4 to the third team’s success in Chalon-sur-Saône on July 12th

The Bianchi-equipped Team Jumbo-Visma goes on drawing wonders at 106th Tour de France. Dylan Groenewegen rode Oltre XR4 to claim the third team’s win with a powerful sprint in the stage 7, 230 km with start in Belfort and finish in Chalon-sur-Saône (France) on Friday, July 12th. The 26-year-old Dutchman outsprinted Caleb Ewan and Peter Sagan, giving Team Jumbo Visma another joy after Mike Teunissen’s success and yellow jersey in the opener and the squad’s triumph in the TTT. Groenewegen clinched 13 wins in 2019 so far.

Team Jumbo-Visma’s George Bennett held the fourth position in the GC with a 47-second gap from the leader Giulio Ciccone, whilst Steven Kruijswijk is eighth (+1:04). Groenewegen went up to eighth in the Points Classification with 66 points, ahead of his teammate and former yellow jersey’s owner Teunissen (64). Wout Van Aert is fifth in the Youth Classification; same position for the Bianchi-equipped squad in the Team Classification.
