Van Aert wins Tour de France stage 10
The Belgian outsprinted Viviani in Albi, giving Team Jumbo-Visma the fourth win out of ten stages
Bianchi goes on flying at 106 Tour de France, as the stage 10 – 217,5 km from Saint-Flour to Albi (France), on Monday July 15th – turned into another “celeste” party. Wout Van Aert claimed his maiden individual Tour win giving Bianchi-equipped Team Jumbo-Visma the fourth success out of ten stages. At the end of a hectic racing day, with the GC shaked by the crosswinds, Van Aert kept on fighting in the main group and powerfully outsprinted Elia Viviani and Caleb Ewan afterwards.
Runner-up in Colmar’s stage 5, Van Aert is the third Team Jumbo-Visma rider leading Oltre XR4 to victory at Tour after Mike Teunissen (who wore the leader’s jersey in second and third stage) in Brussels and Dylan Groenewegen in Chalon-sur-Saône. Team Jumbo-Visma’s triumph with Aquila CV in the TTT completes the picture. Bianchi is the most successful brand of 2019 Tour de France so far.
Steven Kruijswijk gained three positions in the GC going up to fourth with a 1:27from Julian Alaphilippe and a few second behind Team Ineos’ rivals Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal.
