Tour d’Alsace recap
The last stage of the 2019 Tour d’Alsace presented a parcour devoted for a final bunch sprint in the French village of Dannemarie, replicating the exact same finish that saw our Alumni Fabio Jakobsen put his arms up in the air in the 2017 edition while wearing Academy colors. The first part of the stage was marked by several attacks from the top of the peloton, trying to make it up the road. 

After some groups regrouped, we could find a 7-man breakaway coming into the final kilometers of the day, but the bunch perfectly timed the chase and brought the move back with 3 kilometers to go, setting it up for the final rush to the line, in which our Alberto Dainese seized a Top 10 finish as he powered to ninth in the day. 

All in all we can look back to a solid race, as Alberto Dainese (third in stage one) and Alex Evans (second in La Planche des Belles Filles), were close to the stage win. Next to this, the good overall performance was shown in the general classification as the Australian climber rounded the Top 10 and Adam Hartley kept his good legs and took 12th overall.
