Philipsen storms to victory in the Carcassonne stage of the Tour de France

He had to brake once, then again as he weaved through the sprint in the final 200 meters, but with a powerful burst of speed Jasper Philipsen sped to his first Tour de France stage win on a scorching hot day in Carcassonne.

The Alpecin-Deceuninck rider came from behind as Trek-Segafredo’s Mads Pedersen opened the sprint, then threw himself on the inside of the final corner to get past green jersey holder Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and ousting him as Pedersen slacked off third.
