2017 Tour de France

Stage 4: Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel

Tuesday, July 4, 6:20 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. ET

For the third consecutive day the stage surpasses the 200-kilometer mark. It’s a symbolic barrier in a three-week tour, and helps the race reach the mountains as quickly as possible. The last time the Tour finished in Vittel was in 2009; the same roads will be used this year. Eight years ago Denmark’s Niki Sörensen took a solo win. Anything is possible on this stage, even though the sprinters’ teams will do everything to make it a tight finish.

Stage 4: Thomas, Cavendish crash as Démare wins

VITTEL, France (AFP) — British sprint great Mark Cavendish was taken to hospital by ambulance after a spectacular crash in the sprint finish to the Tour de France fourth stage won by France’s Arnaud Démare on Tuesday.

Race leader Geraint Thomas was also taken down in a separate crash in the final kilometer of the 207.5km stage from Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel. He did not lose any time.

Thomas, who had warned on Monday that he just wanted to stay clear of trouble, hit the deck for the second time in three stages. “It’s OK, both times I managed to take off quite a bit of speed (before crashing),” said Thomas. “I’m used to crashing, so it’s fine, I’m all OK.”

His crash came on a bend just inside the final kilometer but Cavendish’s fall looked more spectacular, just a couple of hundred meters from the finish line.

Cavendish was baulked by world champion Peter Sagan against the metal barriers on the side of the road and crashed hard, with two riders, including German John Degenkolb, hitting the stricken Briton as they crashed over the top of him.

Cavendish did finish the stage but later left his Dimension Data team bus with his arm in a sling as he was taken to hospital by ambulance.

“Mark Cavendish hurt his shoulder and hand. On his way to the hospital for further examinations,” said Dimension Data on Twitter.

“If I was Sagan, I’d apologise for that,” Cavendish’s sports director at Dimension Data Roger Hammond told journalists.

Sagan did go to the Dimension Data bus after the race to speak to Cavendish, who crashed out of the 2014 Tour in the first stage after breaking his collarbone in a sprint finish fall he later admitted was his fault.

While Thomas was able to get up and ride on to the finish, Cavendish had needed medical assistance as he lay on the ground in obvious pain.

In all the furor of another bunch pile-up, French champion Démare’s achievement of becoming the first Frenchman to win a Tour stage in a sprint finish since 2006 was almost lost.

“This is great satisfaction for me and the entire team,” said Démare after the stage win. “It’s extraordinary because we came here with the objective of winning a stage. After second the other day, we knew it would be possible.

“The team was focused on the job today, and we pulled it off,” he continued. “I have good legs, and now the green jersey is an objective.

“The Tour is long, and we will keep fighting. The first is to win another stage. I will also try to chase the intermediate sprints.”

Démare’s win allowed him to claim the sprinters’ green jersey from German Marcel Kittel, winner of Sunday’s second stage.

Sagan took second place with Norway’s Alexander Kristoff third on the stage.

Sagan’s time bonus on the line helped him move up to second overall at seven seconds behind Thomas, with reigning champion Chris Froome third at 12 seconds.

However, Sagan was later kicked out of the race by the jury. Cavendish was forced to withdraw after further examinations revealed he had fractured his right shoulder blade.
