Tour de France 2019: Dylan Groenewegen ekes out stage seven win in sprint finish

Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen edged Caleb Ewan at the finish line Friday to win stage seven of the Tour de France.

The Jumbo-Visma rider did just enough to defeat Ewan at the end of the iconic race’s longest day.

The 230-kilometer flat stage from Belfort to Chalon-sur-Saone ended in a sprint finish from a main bunch that included all of the race’s general classification contenders, meaning Italian Giulio Ciccone retained his six-second advantage in the yellow jersey.

Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo) remains ahead of Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step), while defending champion Geraint Thomas (Team Ineos) is still 49 seconds off the pace in fifth.
