In one year, Alaphilippe has seen all the colors


The Frenchman is putting his title of world champion on the line this Sunday in Belgium. Last step of an unforgettable twelve-month journey.

Imola, September 27, 2020. On the famous Formula 1 circuit, a lone man, launched at full speed, stands up. Master of suspense, his face torn by effort, lit by euphoria, he can breathe, parade. He had missed a few hectometers in Bergen in 2017 (resumed under the red flame), legs in Innsbruck in 2018. This time, the dream did not slip away. Julian Alaphilippe takes down all the colors of the rainbow. World champion. The tactics devised by Thomas Voeckler, the coach of the France team, propelled him to the top alone 12 km from the finish. He is registered as the ninth Frenchman to put on the prestigious iridescent jersey after Georges Speicher (1933), Antonin Magne (1936), Louison Bobet (1954), André Darrigade (1959), Jean Stablinski (1962), Bernard Hinault (1980) ,Luc Leblanc (1994) and Laurent Brochard (1997).
