Cyclist Martínez wins tough mountain stage in Tour

Daniel Martínez has won the thirteenth stage of the Tour de France. The 24-year-old Colombian from EF Education First beat German Lennard Kämna (BORA-hansgrohe) in a sprint at the end of a tough mountain stage with seven climbs in Puy Mary.

Schachmann seemed on his way to the stage victory, but was overtaken by Martínez and Kämna 1.6 kilometers before the finish of the col of the first category. He crossed the finish line third. Schachmann (BORA-hansgrohe) already won Paris-Nice earlier this year.

The thinned peloton with all the favorites was far behind Martínez. Bauke Mollema was no longer part of that group. He was involved in a crash 86 kilometers before the end and had to dismount, presumably with a broken wrist. Frenchman Romain Bardet and Colombian Nairo Quintana also went to the ground. The numbers 4 and 5 of the rankings did get back on their bikes.
