Jasper Philipsen has already won 4 stages in the Tour de France 2023

Road 12/07/23 18:13 Migue A.

The domination of the sprints by Alpecin-Deceuninck's Jasper Philipsen is simply overwhelming his rivals. Today he didn't need Mathieu van der Poel to launch him, he simply positioned himself perfectly and rode up when and how he wanted to score his fourth stage in this 2023 edition of the Tour de France.

Jasper Philipsen's total domination in the sprints of the Tour de France

The sprinters did not miss the chance of victory in one of the last clear chances that, in view of the route, they had from here to Paris, since most of what remains are stages with more or less mountains but always with great hardness.

Between this and the accumulated fatigue of yesterday's very hard stage, the tone of this Tour de France 2023 was repeated again with few volunteers willing to launch themselves in search of the breakaway of the day. In fact, practically the first attempt was the one that got away, just at kilometer 5 of the stage and that was made up of just three riders: Andrey Amador, Daniel Oss and Matis Louvel, who in no case did the teams with fast men let them take too much advantage to avoid surprises.

Stage without much of a story beyond the rain, rather small storms caused by the intense heat that has been hitting the peloton in recent days and that had not made its appearance since the second stage, on the way to San Sebastian.

In the last kilometers we could see an ambitious Jumbo-Visma trying to lead Wout van Aert well placed, but the Belgian is nowhere near the top form of this spring, not to mention last year.

Although his team left him perfectly positioned 400 m from the finish, he could not keep the privileged place and would quickly be overtaken. First by Lidl-Trek, looking for another victory for Mads Pedersen and a few meters ahead would be Uno-X who would try to impose his train for Kristoff. However, between that fight appeared Jayco-AlUla with an inspired Dylan Groenewegen who came out of his teammate's trap at the ideal distance and it seemed that he would take the victory. But you can't sell the bear's skin before it's hunted and, without knowing from where, the green jersey of Jasper Philipsen appeared to, with a huge acceleration but without transmitting a sensation of maximum effort, overtake the Dutch rider and end up winning with absolute clarity with a bike's difference.

With no changes in the general classification, this relatively quiet stage, as expected, will help the main protagonists to get their legs ready for another tough mid-mountain day that they will have to face in tomorrow's stage.
