Tour de France 2020: Wout van Aert wins stage seven as Adam Yates retains lead

Wout van Aert
Wout van Aert is the first rider from Belgium to win more than one stage at a single Tour de France since Tom Boonen in 2007

Wout van Aert won stage seven of the Tour de France in a sprint finish as Britain’s Adam Yates retained the leader’s yellow jersey.

The Belgian, who also won stage five, got the better of his sprint rivals at the end of a blustery 168km ride from Millau to Lavaur.

The Jumbo-Visma rider edged out Norway’s Edvald Boasson Hagen and Frenchman Bryan Coquard.

Mitchelton-Scott’s Yates was ninth and stays at the head of the standings.
