(UTV|COLOMBO) – Dylan Groenewegen claimed his first stage win of this year’s Tour de France as Giulio Ciccone retained the leader’s yellow jersey after stage seven.

Defending champion Geraint Thomas finished safely in the peloton to remain fifth overall.

At 230km, stage seven was the longest of this year’s Tour and the flat route set up a thrilling bunch sprint to the finish line in Chalon-sur-Saone.

Caleb Ewan crossed the line in second ahead of Peter Sagan.

Groenewegen, who won two stages at last year’s Tour, timed his lunge for the line perfectly to finish inches ahead of Ewan.

The 26-year-old Dutchman raised his arm in celebration but had to wait for TV replays to confirm victory, his fourth at this race since 2017.
