The fastest Tour de France in history ended as a tradition on the Champs-Elysees with the Belgian’s sprint victory Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) but under the Arc de Triomphe to pass from the winner, in elegant formation with his formidable companions of the Jumbo Visma, was Jonas Vingegaard.
The young Dane, somewhat surprisingly but with total merit, managed to snatch the yellow jersey from Tadej Pogacar, who was aiming straight for the three of a kind and instead had to settle for second place. The young champions dueled almost every stage, with the Dane good at placing the winning shots in the key stages at Serre Chevalier and on Hautacam.
On the third step of the podium was Geraint Thomas, who surrendered quite early to the supremacy of the two leaders. Among so many smiling faces, those ofItalbicigiven that also in this edition, and it is the third time in a row, there were no victories.
