Tour de France Stage 19: The green jersey wraps up and final countdown on yellow

Stage 19 of the Tour de France was the final chance for Peter Sagan and his Bora Hansgrohe team to reel in Sam Bennett to give Peter at shot at his 8th green jersey. Some bad luck for the team with a bee sting to the mouth of Lukas Postlberger caused him to abandon.

Just after the sprint point the men in front decided to have a go at a breakaway and a 12 man field which included the likes of Sagan, Bennett, Kragh Andersen, Trentin, Van Avermaet and some Deceuninck-Quickstep support made it and put several minutes into the peloton. It was a move by Kagh Andersen, which went unresponded to, that allowed him to run up a nearly 1-minute advantage to his second stage victory of the tour.

Turning to tomorrow we have a battle for the TT podium, the yellow jersey, and the polka dot jersey. There are a number of scenarios that we break down which could leave the jersey on the shoulders of Roglic, Pogacar, or the current leader, Carapaz. It could even be a podium sweep for Jumbo Visma tomorrow with current yellow jersey holder Primoz Roglic, former TT world champion Tom Dumoulin and the ever strong Wout Van Aert.
