Doesn’t drive the Tour of France to the end: Lennard Kämna
He was only 100 meters short of a stage win, he missed the yellow jersey by eleven seconds: now the Tour de France has come to an early end for Lennard Kämna from the Bora-hansgrohe team.
LEnnard Kämna has given up his hunt for a stage win at the 109th Tour de France and dropped out due to a cold. This was announced by his Bora-hansgrohe racing team on Tuesday before the 16th stage. The North German has been complaining about a small infection for days, and his condition had not improved even on the rest day. The corona test was negative for the 25-year-old and his teammates.
Due to his aggressive driving style, Kämna was one of the positive appearances from a German point of view at this year’s Tour of France, even if he was denied a happy ending. On the stage to La Planche des Belles Filles he was only 100 meters short of winning the day, and a few days later he missed the yellow jersey in Megève by eleven seconds.
The German Bora team only has seven drivers available in the last week of the tour. The team from Upper Bavaria has so far been denied a stage win.
