The Biggest Booby-Trap at the Tour de France: Cobblestone Roads

Peter Sagan sprints to victory on stage five of the Tour de France

Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) has been handed a 20 second time penalty for drafting his team auto after puncturing in the final kilometres of Stage 6 at the Tour de France, finishing on the Mur de Bretagne.

Martin came home second the last time a Tour stage ended in Mur de Bretagne three years ago and he admitted he had been obsessed about winning here this time on a punchy climb that suited his abilities.

"I'm happy with that, " Sagan said.

'I was following quite good wheels, but it was choppy.

Irizarry is heard asking the man to please get away from her, and begging the nearby officer, Connor, for help. The man resumes his abuse, saying: "You're not American, if you were American you wouldn't wear that".


After a somewhat inauspicious start to the season with his new UAE Emirates team, Martin showed a timely return to form last month when he won a stage and finished fourth overall at the week-long Criterium du Dauphine, the final pre-Tour tune-up for most of the pre-race favourites.

"I knew I wouldn't make it back so it was about limiting the time loss", Dumoulin said. The Dutchman was seventh going into this stage only 13 seconds behind Van Avermaet but will now be a minute behind.

Dumoulin then ran into mechanical issues that could badly hurt his Tour de France hopes.

Thomas's teammate Chris Froome slipped a few seconds behind the front group in the closing metres, but worse luck befell the 2017 Giro d'Italia champion, Tom Dumoulin, who lost the best part of a minute, after puncturing 5km from the finish. Dumoulin is one more second behind. "It's never good to lose time", said Bardet, who has finished on the podium in the past two Tours. Today the legs were good and everything was OK, " said Groenewegen, who rides for Team Lotto NL-Jumbo.

Irish rider Martin broke with one kilometer remaining on the final climb with French rider Pierre Latour offering the only competition. "I don't know what happened - maybe adrenaline - but I wasn't going to let anyone beat me".

Van Avermaet, a BMC support rider for Porte, kept the yellow jersey for a third straight day.

The finishing sprint was the only action in a processional stage that saw little real action or change in the standings, aside from race leader Greg van Avermaet's snatching of a three second time bonus.

The Welshman has been given free reign by Team Sky in the first week to race with Froome for the yellow jersey, although will be expected to revert to the role of super-domestique after the first rest day after stage nine.
