Jungels solos to stage 9 Alpine victory in 2022 Tour de France

Bob Jungels (AG2R Citroën) took an electric solo victory in Châtel on stage 9 of the 2022 Tour de France, holding off a relentless chase from Thibaut Pinot (Groupama–FDJ) who finished in fourth place, with Ineos’ Jonathan Castroviejo taking second place and Carlos Verona (Movistar) rounding off the podium in third.

Pinot was Jungels’ biggest threat of the day when he tried to bridge to the lone attacker on the stage’s major first-category climb of Pas de Morgins, the summit of which fell 10km ahead of the finish.
