La Route de France
Stage 5: St Fargeau - Pouges Le Eaux - Stage Details

Emma Johansson sprinted to second on stage five of the Route de France behind the on-form Giorgia Bronzini. The Italian scored her fifth consecutive stage win in Pouges Le Eaux while Johansson retained her slim advantage in the overall classification. Johansson has been in the orange leader’s jersey since winning the prologue on Saturday.

“I sprinted on the right side. I guess I didn’t really think about it because I was near the barrier but left just enough space for Bronzini to come around on the inside. She sprinted past me, and I couldn’t do anything about it. It’s a bit annoying to come in second again. She’s really fast right now, and I had to cover a lot of attacks on the circuit today. It makes it hard to have that extra kick in the end when you have to jump on everything.” - Emma Johansson
