Outlier Politt triumphs on the twelfth stage of the tour

Nils Politt

Nils Politt struck on the twelfth stage of the 108th Tour de France. The outlier secured the stage win. Tadej Pogacar keeps yellow.

On the 159.4 kilometer long flat section from St. Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Nimes, a 13-man breakaway group formed early on, which was up to 15 minutes ahead of the peloton.

The 27-year-old Politt didn’t want a sprint to the finish line, so he attacked around eleven kilometers before the end of the stage. With success. The German pulled away from the remaining outliers and crossed the finish line first after 3:22:12 hours. It was the first stage success for the cycling professional in the service of Bora-hansgrohe.

Manol Erviti (Spain) and Australian Harrison Sweeny finished second and third, 31 seconds behind.

The peloton with overall leader Tadej Pogacar took it easy after the difficult Mont-Ventoux stage and crossed the finish line 15:52 minutes behind. Pogacar, the stages-21. was still wearing the yellow jersey and is still ahead of Rigoberto Uran (+5: 18) in the overall standings.

As the best Austrian, Patrick Konrad finished 69th. He too was 15:52 minutes behind. Just like Marco Haller in 80th place and Lukas Pöstlberger in 95th place.
