Dylan Groenewegen finally gets another stage win at the Tour de France

Team Jumbo-Visma comes at the end of the longest stage outsprinting Caleb Ewan and Peter Sagan

Groenewegen added a third stage win to his palmares having won two stages last year and coming back from his crash on the opening stage.

Groenewegen sprinted on his own down the left hand side overhauling everyone after a great lead out from his Jumbo-Visma train.

Stéphane Rossetto for Cofidis and Yoann Offredo for Wanty were the two riders who went away on the 230 km longest stage of the Tour de France.

Cobrelli mopped up the final intermediat sprint points as the peloton then geared up to reel in the breakaway.

Drama with 30 kilometres to go as wind split the peloton with Dan Martin and Nairo Quintana on the back foot on the wrong side of the split, trailing 40 seconds behind and put in a desperate attempt to bridge back across.

Groenewegen said to the media after the stage "Every time I sprint against Ewan, it's always very close. He's a very good sprinter but today I could beat him and I'm very happy with this result. The first day I crashed really hard and the next days I was really f*cked but yesterday I felt good again. Today, my team worked so hard for me and we took the win so I'm very happy with this win."

"We took the lead very early but that was good. It was a tight final with some hectic corners then we closed in and got boxed in with 500 metres and I thought I was boxed out but went with 250 metres to go and saw that Caleb Ewan was coming but it was enough."
