Paris – Nice 2024: A coup for the Swiss Tudor team on the second stage – Arvid de Klein cooks for the world elite

After a mostly flat 177.6km at a mostly comfortable pace, De Kleine compatriot Dylan Groenewegen (Jaiko AlUla) completed the podium.

For the Swiss team Tudor, this is perhaps the greatest success in the history of the young team.

“It means a lot to me. I was already on the verge of winning at this level. It's great when things go like this. It was a great team effort, we all stayed calm and with Matteo Trentin we had a driver on the train. Who knew exactly what We have to do it,” said de Klein in the first interview with Eurosport After his victory, he added: “I performed perfectly on my home straight and there were still two compatriots in front of me. They did a great job.”

Pascal Ackermann (Kandel/Israel-Premier Tech) crossed the finish line in ninth place as the best German, and in the overall standings, Piethe replaced Dutchman Olaf Kooij (Visma-Lease a Bike) in first place thanks to the time bonus for second place in Montargis.

Pithie and Kooij are in the lead at the same time as Dane Mads Pedersen (Lidl-Trek). Due to the better results in the stage, Pithie wears yellow.

In the third section on Tuesday, the peloton awaits one of the team time trials that has become rare in the cycling calendar. The trail around Auxerre extends over 26.9 kilometers and at an altitude of 330 metres.

Situation: In the daily standings, the team time remains after each team's first driver – for the general classification, the professionals are stopped individually.

The 82nd edition of the “Race to the Sun” concludes next Sunday in Nice, where the final of the Tour de France will also be held on July 21.
