Bianchi scores hat-trick at Tour de France
Wout Van Aert claimed the third Oltre XR4 victory at Tour de France, outsprinting Edvald Boasson Hagen and Bryan Coquard on Lavaur’s finish line.
Bianchi keeps ruling at the Grande Boucle: Wout Van Aert won stage 7, 168 km from Millau to Lavaur on Friday September 4th, 2020. Equipped with his Oltre XR4, the Belgian outsprinted Edvald Boasson Hagen and Bryan Coquard, finalizing the excellent work of the teammates on a day that saw the race blown to pieces by crosswinds. Team Jumbo-Visma leader Primoz Roglic took advantage of stage 7 too, confirming the second overall position but increasing the gap on other Tour de France contenders such as Tadej Pogacar, Mikel Landa and Richie Porte.
After the impressive Strade Bianche – Milano-Sanremo one-two, Wout Van Aert confirmed to be the strongest rider with the top-performing bike since the season restart. The Belgian rider achieved the sixth victory so far, taking advantage of his excellent shape and the perfect aerodynamic skills of Oltre XR4. The Bianchi CV system – applied on the Oltre XR4 – cancels up to 80% of road vibration thanks to the use of a unique composite material integrated into Bianchi’s high-performance carbon frames and forks. The advantages for the Team Jumbo-Visma riders are more control, less muscle fatigue and, ultimately, more energy.
