Yellow jersey: Tadej Pogacar (SLO/UAE Team Emirates)His lead in the general classification was already particularly comfortable. However, this Sunday, the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, resident of the UAE Team Emirates training, made the sprint of the group of favorites. A sprint during which his dolphin, the Dane Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma), was the only one able to follow him. His other rivals concede at least three seconds on the finish line, such as the Briton Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers), still third, but with a delay which now stands at 1’17 ”.Green Jersey Green jersey: Wout Van Aert (BEL/Jumbo-Visma)He obviously intends to secure his green jersey as soon as possible.

A tunic that hangs by a small thread, since only one unit separates him from Luxembourger Bob Jungels (AG2R Citroën).White Jersey White jersey: Tadej Pogacar (SLO/UAE Team Emirates)Yellow jersey and therefore obviously more than ever white jersey for the best young person. This Sunday, the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, resident of the UAE Team Emirates training, not only consolidated his yellow tunic, but he obviously did the same for that of best young person. His lead is even now 1’46 ”over the Briton Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers).Classification by teams Team classification: Ineos Grenadiers (GBR)Ineos Grenadiers dominates the debates more than ever. At the top of the team classification, the British formation managed to increase its lead over its runner-up, namely the Dutch formation Jumbo-Visma, and 1’04” now separates the two teams. The Brits placed three men in the Top 8: Castroviejo (2nd), Thomas (7th) and Yates (8th), while the Dutch placed three men in the top 19 of the day.Classification by teams Fighter of the day: Thibaut Pinot (FRA / Groupama-FDJ)He will be satisfied with it. This Sunday, the French Thibaut Pinot, resident of the Groupama-FDJ formation, was designated combative of the day. Certainly thanks to his ride to try to catch up with the leading man, namely the Luxembourger Bob Jungels (AG2R-Citroën).
