Tour de France 2022 – Le tableau d’honneur : Jonas Vingegaard et Jumbo Visma sur presque toute la ligne

Vingegaard – Pogacar, the stuff of a major rivalry?


Jonas Vingegaard is the second Danish rider to win the Tour de France, twenty-six years after Bjarne Riis. Let’s wish him a different destiny than his eldest, who admitted to being doped with EPO the year of his victory. At 25, the strongman of the Jumbo Visma team extends the series of young winners after Egan Bernal in 2019 and Tadej Pogacar’s double in 2020-2021. Geraint Thomas, he is now on all the steps of the podium. The Briton, third, had won the 2018 Tour and finished second the following year. As for David Gaudu, he signs the best final result of a French rider for five years.

Green jersey: Wout van Aert

The Top 5

1. Wout van Aert (Denmark – Jumbo Visma)
2. Jasper Philipsen (Belgium – Alpecin – Deceuninck)
3. Tadej Pogacar (Slovenia – UAE Emirates)
4. Christophe Laporte (France – Jumbo Visma)
5. Fabio Jakobsen (Netherlands – Quick Step)

A solo rider and a points record. Wout van Aert, capable of sprinting, punching, climbing, attacking, in short, doing everything, everywhere and all the time, flew over the points classification. If he had won the inaugural time trial in Copenhagen, the Belgian would have even worn the green jersey from one end of this Tour to the other. He still had it for twenty stages after having endorsed it from the 2nd stage. Winner on the Champs-Elysées on Sunday, Jasper Philipsen takes the place of the dolphin in extremis in front of … Tadej Pogacar. The Slovenian managed the feat of finishing twelve of the twenty-one stages in the Top 10.

Polka dot jersey: Jonas Vingegaard

The Top 5

1. Jonas Vingeard (Denmark – Jumbo Visma)
2. Simon Geschke (Germany – Cofidis)
3. Giulio Ciccone (Italy – Trek Segafredo)
4. Tadej Pogacar (Slovenia – UAE Emirates)
5. Wout van Aert (Belgium – Jumbo Visma)

Simon Geschke wore the polka dot jersey to Paris, but the German from Cofidis knew from Hautacam that he could no longer win the mountain classification. But Jonas Vingegaard already having the yellow jersey on his back, Geschke was entitled to a little rabe in a fake way. It’s hard for him, but who can dispute that Vingegaard is the best climber of this Tour? Even if the points were no longer doubled at the top of the last climb in the mountain stages, his two victories at Granon and Hautacam were enough for the Dane to win the day. For the third consecutive year, the winner of the Tour therefore succeeds in the double yellow – polka dot. Wout van Aert appears in the Top 5…

White jersey: Tadej Pogacar

The Top 5

1. Tadej Pogacar (Slovenia – UAE Emirates)
2. Tom Pidcock (Great Britain – INEOS Grenadiers)
3. Brandon McNulty (USA – UAE)
4. Matteo Jorgenson (USA – Movistar)
5. Andreas Leknessund (Norway – Team DSM)

And three for Tadej Pogacar, crowned best young rider in the Tour de France for the third consecutive year. He was alone in the world in this ranking anyway. Tom Pidcock, his runner-up, collapsed in the third week and finished more than 58 minutes behind the Slovenian. But “Pogi” got hot. Within three weeks, Jonas Vingegaard, born on December 10, 1996 (you had to be born after January 1, 1997 to compete) signed the triple yellow jersey, polka dot jersey and white jersey and with Van Aert’s green, the Jumbo n’ would have left nothing.

Team ranking: INEOS Grenadiers

The Top 5

1. INEOS Grenadiers (Great Britain)
2. Groupama FDJ (France)
3. Jumbo Visma (Netherlands)
4. Bora Hansgrohe (Germany)
5. Movistar (Spain)

With Geraint Thomas, Adam Yates and Tom Pidcock, the INEOS Grenadiers have long had three riders in the Top 10 of the general classification and even two in the Top 5. Things went a little wrong in the third week, Yates and especially Pidcock having slipped in the hierarchy, but the British formation was undoubtedly the most complete. For Sky-INEOS, it is the first victory for five years in the team classification. The Groupama – FDJ are their runner-up, with the remarkable Gaudu – Madouas – Pinot trio.

Super combative: Wout van Aert

If that was not enough, Wout van Aert was therefore, as a bonus, elected by the jury chaired by the race director Thierry Gouvenou the most combative rider of this 109th Tour de France. A unanimous victory, which says a lot. The green jersey of the Tour succeeds Franck Bonnamour who was narrowly preferred to him last year. Ten riders (Geschke, Gougeard, Meintjes, Pinot, Pogacar, Politt, Powless, Simmons, van Aert, Wright) were in the running for this trophy.
