Tadej Pogacar remains the leader of the race.

Belgian Wout Van Aert achieved his second victory in this Tour de France this Saturday, by winning the sprint uphill in Lausanne, next to the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee.

The Jumbo rider was the fastest on the downhill finish, where he overtook Australian Michael Matthews and Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, who added four bonus points and secured his yellow jersey as leader.

After three second places in the first three stages, Van Aert won in Calais in a pure “sprint” and wore the yellow jersey for several days. The day was marked by a breakaway by three men, Mattia Cattaneo, Frederik Frison and Fred Wright, who was the last survivor of the breakout.
