Groenewegen sprints to stage victory Tour de France

Dylan Groenewegen has won the seventh stage in the Tour de France. In the streets of Chalon-sur-Saône, the sprinter of Team Jumbo-Visma pushed his wheel across the finish line before Caleb Ewan and Peter Sagan. It is the third stage victory for Team Jumbo-Visma in this Tour, after the Dutch team had previously won the opening stage and the team time trial.

It is the eleventh victory of the season for the 26-year-old rider from Amsterdam. The victory in this Tour stage means the 38th season win for the team of manager Richard Plugge.

“This Tour did not start as I wanted”, a happy Groenewegen said. “It took me a few days to recover from my crash in the opening stage. Today I felt good again. We took the lead in the final quite early. Because of this, we got a bit locked in. Fortunately, Mike made some space, so I could get out. My Tour has succeeded with this victory.”

Wout van Aert, who, just like Tony Martin, Amund Jansen and Teunissen, played an important role in the sprint train, had faith in the good outcome. “During the last sprint, Dylan had not yet fully recovered from his crash. Today, I noticed that he was a lot happier, but especially that he was more interested in the victory. It’s nice that he could finish it off today.”

Groenewegen: “I really wanted that victory. It didn’t work out during the first and second chance, but luckily it did the third time.”
