Tour de France Stage 16 results: Caleb Ewan is honored as the fastest cyclist in the world

Australian Australian Caleb Ewan became the only sprinter to win two tournaments in the 2019 Tour de France while the yellow jersey remained firmly in Julian Alaphilippe's hands.

Australian cyclist Caleb Ewan has just won the second leg of the 2019 Tour de France when he successfully conquered the 16th stage, despite the race without a problem. Lotto Soudal rider pulled out of the Italian race Elia Viviani and Dutch racer Dylan Groenewegen, who went on 2 and 3, 177 km long at the Nimes track under the 40 ° C heat.

Although it was the first time to participate in the French Circuit, Caleb Ewan is currently the only sprint expert to win twice this year, after having succeeded in the 11th stage at Toulouse last Wednesday.

Caleb Ewan decided to make a breakthrough when he was only a few hundred meters away from the destination, so close to the level that Sean Kelly - the Eurosport Tour's expert had to label him as the "world's fastest" by overcoming the opponent in the last 500m. The Irish motorist even trusted Caleb Ewan to win the last leg of the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

Meanwhile, defending champion Geraint Thomas fell in the car, but was fortunate to not be injured and is currently 96 seconds behind the French yellow jersey Julian Alaphilippe. The star of Ineos team fell at a distance of 130 km from the destination.

Danish cyclist Jakob Fuglsang was not so lucky when he fell 28.5 km from the goal, forcing him to give up. This is the second time he has to leave the game early in the past 3 awards.

This 16th race is the final stage for dominant sprinters. From here to the last stage in Paris, the race will take place in the Alps. Section 17 is a 200 km long climb from the Pont du Gard to Gap. The final championship race is expected to take place from Thursday to Saturday (July 25th-27th local time).
