On the verge of tears, cyclist Jonas Vingegaard, winner of the last Tour de France, paid tribute to the victims of the Annecy attack after winning the 5th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné on Thursday in Salins-les-Bains (Jura).
I'm very happy with my performance. But on a day like today, with what happened in Annecy, cycling doesn't really matter," said the very emotional Dane in an interview at the finish line.
My thoughts are with all the families," added the Jumbo-Visma rider, a young father, who appeared on the verge of tears, before leaving for the podium to wear the yellow jersey of leader of the race.
A Syrian refugee armed with a knife wounded Thursday morning six people, including four children aged 22 to 36 months, spreading terror in a park on the shores of Lake Annecy, an attack "without apparent terrorist motive", according to the first elements of the investigation.
