Navardauskas wins tricky Tour stage
25 Jul 2014 17:05
Ramunas Navardauskas was rewarded for a daring late escape with victory on stage 19 of the Tour de France in Bergerac.
-
Navardauskas held off a peloton splintered by crashes on a treacherous finale to the 208.5-kilometre route from Maubourguet Pays du Val d'Adour to claim victory for Garmin-Sharp.
-
The torrential rain in the Dordogne region aided the Lithuanian's chances as Navardauskas achieved what his team-mate Jack Bauer could not last Sunday in finishing first ahead of the sprinters.
-
John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano) led home a small bunch, with Alexander Kristoff (Katusha), the man who caught Bauer in Nimes, third.
-
All the riders from the main pack were credited with the same time due to a late crash with less than three kilometres left.
-
Ireland’s Nicolas Roche finished 51st on the stage and the Tinkoff-Saxo rider is now just under two hours behind the overall leader in 39th place.
