Kasper Asgreen and the strongest breakaways of the bunch… The summary of the 18th stage


Video duration: 8 minutes


Starting on the run from the first hectometres of the race, the Dane won on Thursday at the cost of a heroic day.

The group played, lost! By dint of playing cat and mouse with the breakaway, the group burned its wings and was unable to reassemble on a leading group that started at kilometer zero. If it really was Kasper Asgreen who won on Thursday July 20 during stage 18 of the Tour de France, the work of the entire breakaway is to be hailed. On the block in the last kilometers to resist the fury of the sprinter teams, Kasper Asgreen, Jonas Abrahamsen, Victor Campenaerts and Pascal Eenkhoorn have used their last trenches to fight for the right to fight for the four-way victory.

Strong in the sprint, the winner of the 2021 Tour of Flanders saves the Tour from his team, which had not yet won at the Grande Boucle this year. After the abandonment of Fabio Jakobsen and the repeated failures of Julian Alaphilippe, despite the numerous attacks, Patrick Lefevere’s team is finally smiling again.
