Team Jumbo-Visma (France) - Press Release: Christophe Laporte has taken a surprising win in the nineteenth stage of the Tour de France. In the streets of Cahors, the 29-year-old Frenchman excelled by riding away just before the finish line. Laporte finished solo and secured Team Jumbo-Visma’s fifth Tour stage victory and the 31st victory of the season.
"This is the best day of my career. It's still hard to believe, but I'm super happy with this victory and the confidence the team gave me", Laporte said. "With five kilometres to go, Wout said: 'It's for you'. Our main goal was to drop Jonas safely within the three-kilometre mark and once we had achieved that, I got the green light to sprint."
