TOUR DE FRANCE 2024: JASPER PHILIPSEN PIPS BINIAM GIRMAY TO NET FIRST WIN, MARK CAVENDISH FAILS TO FIRE

After the first stage after the rest day in Orléans, Jasper Philipsen was allowed to make the victory gesture. The stage winner does not give up the green jersey yet and is closing in on leader Biniam Girmay. 


A hotly-contested sprint saw Jasper Philipsen charge to victory on Stage 10 of the Tour de France. It's been a difficult, winless Tour to date for Philipsen, but he found his best to down the in-form Biniam Girmay, with Mark Cavendish finishing down the field. With the rest of the bunch crossing the line together, the GC standings remained the same heading into Wednesday's Massif Central test.

Jasper Philipsen and his Alpecin-Deceuninck team finally got their train back on track as world champion Mathieu van der Poel led out his Belgian team-mate to a textbook victory in Stage 10 of the Tour de France at Saint-Amand-Montrond.
A four-time winner last year, Philipsen had only been able to muster three second-place finishes in the opening week of the Tour this summer – one of which wiped off after a large deviation fell foul of the race jury. But everything fell into place perfectly for the 26-year-old on Tuesday with Philipsen powering to victory by a bike length over Eritrea’s Biniam Girmay (Intermarche-Wanty) and Germany’s Pascal Ackermann (Israel-Premier Tech).
Belgium’s Wout van Aert (Visma-Lease a Bike) and Colombia’s Fernando Gaviria (Movistar) completed the top five at the end of the otherwise leisurely schlep through the Loire and Cher regions of France.

In his pursuit of a record-extending 36th victory on the Tour, Britain’s Mark Cavendish (Astana-Qazaqstan) was crowded out on the technical finale of a stage he won back in 2013. There was also disappointment for another rider looking to double up – the Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen (Jayco-AlUla), who finished seventh.
After a 187km stage light on drama but heavy on picture-perfect chateaux there was no change in the overall standings with Slovenia’s Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) retaining his 33-second lead over Belgium’s Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) ahead of a tough eleventh stage through the mountainous Massif Central.

Biniam Girmay started very strong. He is a lot of points ahead. Before thinking about the points classification, we first wanted a stage victory. Now that we have it, we will see what is still possible for the green jersey.”

Here are the updated results in the points classification. Philipsen did all he could today, but remains a long way adrift from Girmay. It certainly looks like a two-horse race, though. 

1 Biniam Girmay 267

2 Jasper Philipsen 193

3 Jonas Abrahamsen 107

4 Anthony Turgis 101

5 Fernando Gaviria 100

6 Bryan Coquard 98

7 Arnaud De Lie 98

8 Arnaud Démare 83

9 Dylan Groenewegen 79

10 Kévin Vauquelin 70

It's also a great result for runner-up Biniam Girmay. He might not have landed a third stage win, but that's a big result in the points classification, and a lot of points for him to earn on a finish that we didn't think (at least until the start of this Tour) uit him so well.

Today is a triumph for Philipsen, who bounces back after a difficult start to the Tour, and proves he can dig deep and stay resilient when things aren't going his way.

And in case anyone is wondering - no indication this time that Philipsen deviated from his sprinting line. This time, the result will definitely stand!
