A dream 2019 for Alaphilippe and dyed yellow

The Frenchman added the 11th triumph of the season in the third stage of the Tour, achieving the first yellow jersey of his career. He also leads the UCI ranking.


Julian Alaphilippe 2019 scares. This is shown by the numbers of the French so far this season, being the rider that leads the UCI ranking overwhelmingly and with a list of victories that no other rider comes close.

Un total of once stage wins distributed in eight races endorse him as the best runner that exists today, although without a doubt the last of them all has been the most special. Julian fulfilled a dream in the third stage of the present Tour de France: partial triumph with exhibition included in Épernay, the capital of champagne, and first yellow jersey of his career.

As if that were not enough, he has also achieved other minor victories such as the mountain jersey in Dauphiné and the regularity jersey in Colombia.

It should be noted that as of this year, Alaphilippe 111111 has only gone empty in three one-day races, , so in stages, its effectiveness is 100% in terms of at least achieving a partial triumph Of the three appointments that he did not win, he climbed to the podium in one of them, 2nd in Flecha Brabanzona, and in another one he grazed: 4th in Amstel Gold Race. Your worst result in this idyllic 2019 is the 16th position in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

After getting the rd stage of his record in the Tour de France with a stunning authority after attacking 15 kilometers from the finish, other peloton roosters like the Colombian Egan Bernal, one of the leaders of the Ineos team, praised the Frenchman's machado: "It was impossible to follow Alaphilippe, it has been impressive".
