Bauhaus wins, Sosa is crowned and ride without prize for Mas

Phil Bauhaus took the last stage of the Tour de la Provence, whose general went to Iván Sosa. Lluis Mas, the protagonist of the day, was hunted in the last 2 kilometers.


Iván Ramiro Sosa, a Colombian from Ineos who won Mont Ventoux this Saturday, took the general of the Tour de la Provence. The 12th victory of his career after there was no fight for the overall in the last stage, which was decided to sprint. And there the fastest was Phil Bauhaus, German sprinter from Bahrain, who took advantage of Deceuninck's work for Bellerini, who could not conquer his third win this time and finished second. Bouhanni, very angry because he was locked against the fence, finished third.

A sprint that was possible because the peloton had to squeeze to hunt down the break, in which there was Spanish protagonism. Lluis Mas (Movistar) leaked in a leak together with Gallopin (Ag2r), Leknessund (DSM) and Laveau (Xelliss). The Majorcan from Ses Salines left great sensations and ran with ambition because, when it seemed that the group was on top of them, he launched an attack at 24 km that kept the escape alive. He in front and his escape companions in pursuit, put the platoon in check, which could only hunt them down in the streets of Salon-de-Provence.

In that town the sprint was carried out after several curves that added a lot of nervousness. Alaphilippe and Stybar guided their teammate Ballerini to the last few meters, but this time he couldn't finish. Bauhaus took advantage of this work, registering its 11th professional victory and the first for its team in 2021.
