Saint-Martin-de-Ré (AP) – Sam Bennett has won the tenth stage of the 107th Tour de France. After 168.5 kilometers from Le Château-d’Oléron to Saint-Martin-de-Ré, the Irishman won ahead of Caleb Ewan and Peter Sagan.
The yellow jersey is held by Slovenian Primoz Roglic, who is still 21 seconds ahead of Colombian defending champion Egan Bernal.
Prior to the stage, it was announced that all drivers had remained negative in the corona tests around the first day of rest. But there was a positive result from Tour Director Christian Prudhomme, who has to leave the race for at least a week. Four coaches from the 22 teams also tested positive, but this had no consequences for the teams.
The next day, the Tour de France continues with the eleventh stage over 167.5 kilometers from Châtelaillon-Plage to Poitiers. Apart from a mountain in the fourth category, there are no major difficulties that could lead to a mass sprint.
