Van Aert, the green giant.

Three second places (in Copenhagen, Nyborg and Sonderborg) and two stage victories (in Calais, before Lausanne, this Saturday), Wout Van Aert is, with Tadej Pogacar, the other strong man of this start of the Tour.

The Belgian offers himself an 8th victory on the Tour and takes off in the classification of the green jersey.

Van Aert impressive in the final.

As since the start of this Tour.

Wright, 3, 2, 1.

Frederik Frison (Lotto-Soudal), Mattia Cattaneo (Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl) and Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious) were the daredevils of the day after an attempt by the elusive Dane Magnus Cort Nielsen.

The Belgian was dropped in the penultimate difficulty of the day.

The Italian, awarded the prize for combativeness, let the Briton slip away 7 km from the line.

Wright was finally swallowed up 3.5 km from the finish.

After a long day spent in front.

Van Hooydonck, the driver of the Jumbo-Visma coach.

The Belgian led the peloton in the last 50 kilometers.

A way to prove that the Jumbo-Visma team will, day after day, try to jostle with always several cards in hand.

For stage wins and general classification.

Maljka, McNulty, Pogacar's bodyguards.

The Pole and the American, as in the climb of La Planche des Belles Filles, ensured the last relays for their leader Tadej Pogacar (3rd at the finish, with 4 '' bonus at the finish).

The UAE team (which lost the Norwegian Vegard Stake Laengen, who tested positive for Covid-19) showed that they could hold the reins of the race.


Jasper Philipsen, missed again.

It was the card shot by Alpecin-Deceuninck.

Mathieu Van der Poel multiplied in the final to place the Belgian sprinter.

Efforts that were not crowned with success, Jasper Philipsen (5th in the 2nd stage; 3rd in the 3rd stage; 2nd in the 4th stage) was not in the game in Lausanne (41st at 1'11'' ).

Peter Sagan passes by.

The final, rugged, seemed to have the profile to please the solid Slovak.

The leader of the TotalEnergie team (6th in the 2nd stage; 4th in the 3rd stage; 5th in the 4th stage) did not have the legs to compete.

He finished very late 130th (at 7'7'').

Ben O'Connor, the unfortunate.

The Australian affected during the 5th stage on the cobblestones sees the stages follow each other and resemble each other.

4th in the 2021 Tour, the leader of the AG2R-Citroën team set off from Copenhagen with high hopes.

He was again overwhelmed by bad luck this Saturday.

He finished very late 148th at 9'11''.
