With just one kilometer left to the finish line, Laporte attacked the trio, including  Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious), Jasper Stuyven (Trek–Segafredo) and Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck). He took a solo victory, which was quite obvious by now, breaking away from the trio.

The win makes Christophe Laporte a first stage winner of french origin at the Tour 2022. The win has surely saddened the sprinters, as Castelnau-Magnoac presented itself with many oppertunities for the seeking.

Laporte, still surprised by his remarkable win, talked to the media:

I still can’t believe I’ve won,The team really trusted me today and Wout told me that today was for me after we had a great Tour. 

He talked about their implied strategy as a team:

Our first goal was to make sure Vingegaard was safe with three kilometers to go. Then just before entering the last kilometer I saw that there was a gap and I made the jump to the front group. I can’t believe I could finish it off
