Eritrean Girmay Takes Third Tour De France Stage Victory

July 11, (THEWILL) – Biniam Girmay has won stage 12 of the 2024 Tour de France, finishing ahead of the pack on Thursday. The 204-kilometre ride from Aurillac to Villeneuve-Sur-Lot, saw the Eritrean cyclist claim his third victory in this year’s Tour. He beat Wout van Aert and Arnaud Demare, who finished second and third respectively.

However, Tadej Pogacar kept the yellow jersey as the overall leader. The Slovenian cyclist remains in a strong position to win the Tour. Yet, this stage win adds to Girmay’s growing list of achievements in professional cycling.

The race saw some major changes in the general classification. Primoz Roglic, who was seen as a top contender, fell out of contention. This development has shaken up the standings and could impact the rest of the Tour.

Girmay’s win highlights the growing diversity in professional cycling. As an Eritrean, his success brings attention to the talent emerging from African nations in this sport. His performance in this Tour de France is likely to inspire more cyclists from his country and continent.

The Tour de France continues with more challenging stages ahead. Riders will face mountain climbs and time trials as they make their way towards Paris. The final outcome of the race remains uncertain, with several cyclists still in contention for the overall victory.
