Yesterday’s stage of Tour de Frnance was definitely the most chaotic and intense one so far. Fernando Gaviria claimed stage win while Van Avermaet continues to stay in yellow.

 

The moment everyone knew Gaviria was about to grab his second Tour de France stage win was right after he outsprinted his main rivals in the final kilometers of the 195-km stage which started in La Baule and ended in Sarzeau.

 

The Quick-Step Floors rider beat world champion Peter Sagan after a second, intense and powerful burst of sprint leaving him second place while Greipel took third.

 

“We wanted to wait to the last moment to launch but it was too hard. I’m really happy anyway,” Gaviria said.

 

On the other hand, Sagan admitted Gaviria was faster than him while Belgian Greg van Avermaet was able to retain the leader’s jersey.

 

“He’s faster than me but it’s ok,” Sagan said.
