Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (France) - Press Release: The Italian capitalised on his teammates’ impeccable teamwork, as Julian Alaphilippe retained the yellow jersey.
Five years after a memorable Deceuninck – Quick-Step stage win in Nancy, another member of the Wolfpack roared over the line victorious in the former capital of Lorraine. Elia Viviani was the one to make it two in a row at the 106th Tour de France for our team, emerging as the fastest in an enthralling sprint at the end of the long 213.5km stage 4.
“This victory means a lot to me. Actually, I can’t believe that I won today, it’s crazy. Notching up a stage here at the Tour de France was one of my season’s biggest goal, and having achieved it thanks to the team’s outstanding work makes me very, very happy”, Elia said after his massively deserved success, which helped him become the 18th active rider boasting stage wins in all Grand Tours.
