A superb duel with Marc Hirschi and the double for Thibau Nys ! After the sprinters and the climbers, it washave it’s the turn of the punchers to shine this Saturday on the Tour of Hungaryon the occasion of a 4th floorape contested on circuit around thehe capital Budapest. The finish was judged in Etyek, at the top of a 1.5 km climb at 6.1% which the peloton tackled in full after resuming the day’s breakaway just at the foot. A pure hill climb which therefore smiled on the wearer of the yellow jersey Thibau Nys, already winner the day before! After a huge amount of work from his teammate Mathias Vacek to do the housework, the young Belgian from Lidl-Trek launched his sprint more than 200 meters from the line. Alone Marc Hirschi (UAE Team Emirates) was able to challenge him for victory, but after a very good mano a mano, the Swiss finally had to admit defeat.

Thibau Nys had already taken power the day before!

Thibau Nys on a royal road to succeed Hirschi?

He’s another Swiss runner, Yannis Voisard (Tudor Pro Cycling Team), which completes the day’s podium. Javier Serrano (Team Polti Kometa) and Lander Loockx (TdT-Unibet) takes its place in the top 5. Following its 3rd success this year, all less than a month after starting its road season, Thibau Nys logically consolidates its position as leader of the general classification with the bonuses. He is now 14 seconds ahead of the Italian Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates), 8th in the stage.
