A photo finish with 4 riders! 1) Ewan 2) Sagan 3) Bennett 4) Van Aert.
A less nervous day in the peloton but we see many GC teams losing key supporters as we head into the mountains over the next few days, which will surely impact the racers. But today was a battle for green. Bennett extended his lead to 25 points over Sagan at the intermediate sprint but gave it back and then some on the finishing line by the width of a tire. With 238 points Sam Bennett leads the Tour de France points competitions over Peter Sagan by 15 points. It’s anyone guess where this one lands; in 2015 Andre Greipel scored 366 points and was 2nd to Sagan, yet last year Sagan won green with 316 points
What we do know is that both Bora Hansgrohe and Deceuninck-Quickstep are all in for green with no GC hopes for either team. It will be a battle that is likely decided in Paris.
