French Thibaut Pinot wins Tour of the Alps as Froome grabs fourth place

Tour of the alps 2018

Famous climber Thibaut Pinot has just won this season’s Tour of the Alps race while Ukraine’s rider Mark Padun claimed the final, fifth stage victory.

 

On the other hand, four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome was able to take fourth place in the general classification as he now prepares for the Giro d’Italia.

 

“It was an incredible race, across all five days,” said Pinot. “It was five days of battle. There were no gifts. I’m really happy to write my name into this race, which, for a climber, is very prestigious.”
