Gallery: The day the break never went

by Matt de Neef


On stage 4 of the Tour de France, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) was tearing it up in the high mountains, ripping the legs off his rivals to set up team leader Primoz Roglic. A day later he was Jumbo-Visma’s man for the bunch sprint — a sprint he won to make it two stage wins in as many days for the Dutch outfit. Strade Bianche winner, Milan-San Remo winner, mountain super-domestique, bunch-sprint winner, time trial monster — is there are more complete rider than Wout van Aert?

Today’s photo gallery brings you all the action from stage 5 of the 2020 Tour de France, a stage that, bizarrely, didn’t feature a breakaway.
