Jonas Vingegaard: The Tour de France is tough, anything can happen

Jonas Vingegaard has suggested he was in the best shape of his life when he won the 2022 Tour de France, but acknowledged that victory in cycling’s biggest race also hinges on surviving and avoiding crashes and injuries.

The 25-year-old Dane was riding only his second Tour, but thanks to excellent support from the Jumbo-Visma team he was able to overcome the dangers of the first week, beating Tadej Pogačar to the finish atop the Col du Granon and then defending the yellow jersey to Paris.
