Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen has won the second stage of the 109th Tour de France. After 202.2 kilometers from Roskilde to Nyborg, the 25-year-old won the sprint ahead of Belgian Wout van Aert and Denmark’s Mads Pedersen.
Thanks to the time bonus, Van Aert took over the yellow jersey from Yves Lampaert, who had already experienced a moment of shock on the bridge over the Great Belt.
The Belgian was temporarily left behind after a fall, but with the help of his teammates he made it back into the field.
At the end of the guest appearance in Denmark, the tour will continue on Sunday with the third stage over 183 kilometers from Vejle to Sönderborg.
This is followed by the first rest day before continuing in France on Tuesday.
