Laporte completes Jumbo-Visma domination with Tour de France stage win in Cahors

Christophe Laporte (Jumbo-Visma) continued Jumbo-Visma’s domination with a striking solo win on stage 19 of the 2022 Tour de France. The Frenchman attacked the embers of a brave three-man break containing Jasper Stuyven and Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious) just as it was caught within the final kilometre.

Laporte topped Alpecin-Deceuninck’s Jasper Philipsen, who won the bunch sprint over Alberto Dainese (Team DSM), to become the first French stage winner of the 2022 Tour de France. It was a bitter disappointment for the pure sprinters given dearth of opportunities in this year’s race.
