Lippert scores for Movistar in the rain

The second stage of the Women’s Tour de France left a race ending marked by two factors: rain and falls. A day that was decided in the final meters and in which the German from Movistar Liane Lippert took the victory with a formidable sprint before the leader Lotte Kopecky. She surprised the yellow jersey at the end of the race and thus got her first victory in the gala competition. With the rain making an appearance and after having suffered a fall. Without a doubt, a day that she will never forget the German champion, that she received the congratulations of her partner and current champion Van Vleuten.

Among the main favorites there were no differences or attacks throughout the six ports that presented this second stage. Everything suggested that the ascent to Trébiac could occur, but it did not. Perhaps the wet road and the falls made them reserve for tomorrow’s session. Just van vleuten had a setback with a fall 47 kilometers from the finish but immediately her Movistar teammates immediately re-enlisted her with the peloton. The last descent became very dangerous for the runners and where the worst save was the Dutch Eva Van Agt, since he crashed when he was leading the day along with his compatriots, Koster and Kasteljin, six kilometers from reaching the finish line. We will have to see if he can continue on the Tour.

On the part of the Spanish, Anne Santesteban and mavi garcia they were in the group of favourites, but in the end they lacked legs on the last climb, losing 4 and 8 seconds, respectively with Kopecky. Looking ahead to Wednesday, it is a flat day in which the sprinters could have their chance to get a victory in which they will pass through the castles of Pompadour and Hautefort and SaintRobert.
