Jonas Vingaard, king of the mountains, wins the Tour de France
King of the mountains. Champion of the Champs-Elysées. Jonas Vingaard went from talented rookie to dominating leader in his own right over three weeks of epic racing to claim his first Tour de France title on Sunday.
Denmark’s former fish factory worker dethroned reigning champion Tadej Pogacar with a memorable performance in the mountains in cycling’s biggest race. Vingeaard, 25, who finished second to Pogacar in his first Tour last year, excelled in the scorching heat that enveloped France this month and emerged victorious in a thrilling duel with Pogacar, the great initial favourite. of the race.
Vingegaard and Pogacar were clearly in a class of their own this year as their closest rival Thomas was reduced to a mere spectator in the leaders fight.
Vingegaard delivered his decisive blow in the Pyrenees, signing a second stage victory in the ski resort of Hautacam. There the Dane responded to a series of attacks from Pogacar and eventually dropped the Slovenian on the final big mountain stage of this year’s race to increase his overall lead to over three minutes.
Pogacar cracked about 2½ miles from the finish on the final ascent, with his hopes of winning a third straight title nearly over. He fought until the very end, but Vingegaard was again the strongest in Saturday’s individual time trial to effectively secure the title.
Ward and Detmers help Angels calm Braves with 9-1 rout
ATLANTA — Taylor Ward homered in five runs, Reid Detmers pitched five scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Angels chilled the Atlanta Braves with a 9-1 win on Sunday.
Max Stassi went 3-for-4 and drove in three runs, and Ward was 3-for-5 with an RBI for the Angels, who improved to 3-14 this month and snapped a five-game skid. They had lost 14 of 16 games and were the worst 16 games of the season under .500.
The Braves, defending World Series champions, had won 14 of 19 and were 35-11 since June 1, the best record in the majors during that span.
Atlanta, which started the day half a game behind the first-place New York Mets in the NL East, was the worst of the 10½ season on June 1. The Braves are trying to erase their biggest deficit to win a division title since the The Division era began in 1969. The 1993 team set the franchise record at 10 games before winning the NL West.
Anderson (8-6) was 2-0 with a 2.30 ERA in three starts this month, but looked more like the pitcher whose 6.91 ERA in June was the highest in the NL last month. The right-hander allowed seven runs and eight hits over three innings.
Ronald Acuña Jr.’s RBI single in the seventh put Atlanta on the board. Stassi’s triple RBI in the eighth made it 9-1.
