Danny van Poppel wins final stage in Wallonie

Danny van Poppel attacked at the bottom of the steep, cobbled climb that topped out just before the finish of the final stage in the Tour de Wallonie Wednesday, and soloed to his second victory of the five-day race. With only four riders, Trek Factory Racing used its resources perfectly to lead Danny van Poppel into the tricky s-turn at the bottom of the Mur de Thuin climb where he made his move early, opting not to wait for the sprint, and opened a gap that no one could close.

Van Poppel third in stage four bunch sprint, retains points lead

Although he could not match his victory in stage two, Danny van Poppel’s third place in the 162-kilometer stage four at the Tour de Wallonie retained his lead in the points classification. The race played out under more favorable weather than yesterday and it all ended with the expected bunch sprint. Jonas Van Genechten (IAM Cycling) was first across the line, ahead of Michael Morkov (Tinkoff-Saxo) and Danny van Poppel respectively.

Van Poppel 7th in rain-soaked stage three

The rain returned for the third stage at Tour de Wallonie, the longest of the five-day race at 218 kilometers, and with the wet conditions came blustery winds. It was not an enjoyable day to be over five and half hours in the saddle, and explicable why the peloton arrived well past the slowest estimated time.

Mollema’s cements seventh overall in wet final stage

It was a viciously fought Tour de France from beginning to end, and with four successive punishing action-filled days in the Alps in the final week it wasn’t until Bauke Mollema’s wheel crossed the finish line on avenue des Champs-Élysées that he could breathe a sigh of relief and officially lay claim to a stellar seventh place in the overall classification.

Mollema climbs to 7th overall in penultimate stage

Bauke Mollema continued where he finished off in Friday’s stage 19 with another strong climbing day to move up another rung in the leaderboard. Mollema, who started the day in eighth overall, climbed the final mountain of this year’s Tour de France - the famed Alpe d’Huez - often leading the select group that also contained Alberto Contador and Vincenzo Nibali to finish with enough time to jump ahead of Mathias Frank (IAM Cycling) into seventh place.

Diary of a domestique - July 25

“But then, we hit the Alps. And yeah, this is another story again: it is also really hard and it is the third week. On top of the first three stages being really hard. Its not easy. We’re going crazy at the moment. Most of the days, from start to finish, we’re going full gas.” - Grégory Rast
