The fourth stage in the Tour should also be right up the alley of the sprinters. A short and fast stage takes the riders from Redon to Fougères. Will it be three in a row for Alpecin-Fenix ​​or can escapees surprise the peloton? Follow it all on this page.

  1. 11:3911 a.m. 39. What kind of protest do we get? Mixed signals continue to come in from France. The members of the Riders Union would have decided to strike, but that is certainly not the entire peloton. Staf Scheirlinckx, of the BCPA cyclists’ union, informs our editors that the riders will stop for 1 minute at the start and then start slowly, but that it is certainly not the intention to ride 50 kilometers at a snail’s pace. .

  3. 11:1111 am 11. Strike? In the meantime, all kinds of reports are reaching us that the riders are planning a strike after yesterday’s conditions. The first 50 kilometers would be completed in a column, after which the riders would do a short protest. The last 100 kilometers would then be normal again. For now, it remains a rumor. .
  4. 10:4810 hours 48. Today for Philipsen? Alpecin-Fenix ​​was able to score 2 days in a row, with Van der Poel and Merlier. Today it might be 3 out of 3, maybe with a 3rd rider. Will the team favor Jasper Philipsen on the slightly more slippery finish? “I am not a lead-out man and I hope that I can also sprint in this Tour,” Philipsen said last night. “It is understandable and right that Jasper is a bit frustrated,” says sports director Christoph Roodhooft. “It’s a shame for him, but we make a choice every day and on Monday Tim was chosen to sprint.” .

A short and relatively flat ride – no mountain points to be earned – takes the riders from Redon to Fougères over just 150 km. In 2015, Cavendish won the stage to Fougères, can he triumph there again today? Yesterday’s stage – with many victims of crashes – will undoubtedly have cut down on most riders. With the loss of Caleb Ewan, the top favorite for the sprints, among other things, the question is which team will take control of the race. Does Lotto-Soudal react by placing a pawn in the flight of the day? And can the flight hold up to the finish? .
