Australian Simon Clarke (Israel PT) won the fifth stage of the Tour de France, Wednesday July 6, between Lille and Arenberg, after which Belgian Wout van Aert kept his yellow jersey. The stage run partly on the cobblestones turned out badly for the Jumbo team, dominating the day before: if Van Aert saved his yellow jersey despite a fall, the Slovenian Primoz Roglic, who also tasted the bitumen, lost more of two minutes on the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, the first of the favorites on arrival.
In the general classification, the yellow jersey remains on the shoulders of Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma)who remains 13 seconds ahead of the American neilson Powerless (EF-Education-Easypost) and 14 on Edvald Boasson Hagen (TotalEnergies).
