in Poligny, Mohoric does not leave county – Liberation

In the Jura, the Slovenian from Bahrain Victorious won on the wire ahead of the Dane Asgreen, winner the day before. The sprinters, who had decided to join the breakaway, are again trapped.

The cream of sprinters together in a Tour de France breakaway. The situation, extremely rare, however presented itself this Friday, July 21 on the roads of the Jura, between Moirans-en-Montagne and Poligny. Jasper Philipsen, Mads Pedersen, Dylan Groenewegen, to name but a few, managed to slip away from the peloton after an intense fight at the start of the race. But 24 hours after being trapped by Kasper Asgreen (Soudal – Quick Step) and his breakaway companions in Bourg-en-Bresse, they were again rolled in flour by their runaway companions. On the Ivory Coast, 30 terminals from the finish, Kasper Asgreen (him again!), Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorious) and Ben O’Connor (AG2R Citroën) decided to take a little lead.

The trio will never be seen again. Behind, the legs sting, even for the big thighs of the peloton. At the end of a final straight line of 8 kilometers, it was the Australian O’Connor who launched the sprint first. Kasper Asgreen catches up with him, seems to break away, before the Slovenian Mohoric manages to get ahead of him by a hair, as the photo finish will confirm. Already fourth Thursday, Jasper Philipsen regulates the sprint of the pursuers. He will have one last opportunity to shine on the Champs-Elysées on Sunday. Before that, you will have to pass the Vosges mountains on Saturday, in a stage in the form of a perpetual toboggan. Jonas Vingegaard, still in yellow, shouldn’t shake too much.
