Tour de France gallery: A sketchy day on the Atlantic coast

by Matt de Neef

Against the odds, all 165 remaining riders in the Tour de France were able to start stage 10 on Tuesday. It was a super-flat day along the Atlantic coast which brought the promise of strong crosswinds, and while there wasn’t as much echelon action as on stage 7, the race did split into several pieces. There were plenty of crashes too, thanks to an abundance of road furniture.

A group of 66 got to the finish where Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-QuickStep) sprinted to his first-ever Tour de France stage win, and boy did it mean a lot to him.

Here’s how our photographers saw the action on stage 10 of the 2020 Tour de France.
