I am very proud and happy for this win,” Coquard said after crossing the line. Vine, who looked assured throughout the stage, will start the final stage of the race 15 second ahead of Pello Bilbao (Bahrain-Victorious) and Simon Yates (Jayco-Alula). Asked about the stage, Vine stated “It was pretty stressful” but he is “looking forward to Lofty.” Tomorrow’s fifth and final stage, from Unley to Mount Lofty is a new finish for the race. At the second KOM and penultimate crossing of the finish line, the two groups were just about back together again.

Making the cut in the invitation-only, 60-rider field for the off-road, six race series was welcome news over the winter for the accomplished roadie.

The 2023 Tour de France will start in Bilbao in the Basque Country on Saturday July 1 and end in Paris on Sunday July 23. The Tour hasn't included a team time trial since 2019, when Jumbo-Visma won the 27.6km stage around Brussels. The team time trial is expected to be on stage 6 and around the town of Tarbes at the foot of the Pyrenees. The 2023 Tour seems centred around the Grand Ballon, last used in 2019 but never as a summit finish. With no closing time trial, the Tour de France peloton will transfer to Paris on Sunday morning.3 months ago Cyclingnews
