At Mûr-de-Bretagne, Poupou's Grandson Took the Stage Win and the Famous Yellow Jersey

Tour de France (France) - Press Release: Mathieu van der Poel came up with a masterpiece at the top of Mûr-de-Bretagne. He rode for the time bonus at the first passage before winning stage 2 solo to take the yellow jersey that his grand-father Raymond Poulidor never had in his prestigious career.

Two finishes for MVDP:

Van der Poel attacked at the foot of the first ascent to Mûr-de-Bretagne 17km before the end. It enabled him to take 8’’ bonus on the first passage while Tadej Pogacar (5’’), Primoz Roglic (2’’) and Julian Alaphilippe crossed the line in that order. Approximately 80 riders were reunited for the last lap, led by Ineos Grenadiers. Richie Porte was still at the helm of the reduced group with 1.2km to go when Nairo Quintana sped up for a little while. Italian champion Sonny Colbrelli attacked 900 metres before the line and was soon countered by van der Poel. No one managed to catch the Dutchman who won with an advantage of 6’’ over the Slovenian duo formed of Pogacar and Roglic, again in that order. Fifth at 8’’, Alaphilippe lost the Maillot Jaune to van der Poel.
