- Marlen Reusser surprisingly wins the 127 km long 4th stage of the women’s Tour de France.
- With 23 kilometers to go, the Swiss successfully broke away from the field with an attack.
- The Swiss crosses the finish line with a lead of 1:24 minutes.
Marlen Reusser is back. The native of Bern, who is making her comeback on the tour, secured the stage win on Wednesday. The 30-year-old won the 127 km section from Troyes to Bar-sur-Aube solo. Marianne Vos from the Netherlands continues to wear the maillot jaune.
Reusser celebrates a successful return to competition mode with the stage victory on the eight-day tour. The Olympic time-trial silver medalist looks back on a difficult month in June, with retirement from the World Tour in England after a fall on her wrist and a stubborn Covid illness that prevented her from competing in the Tour de Suisse Women.
A team decision at the origin
“Today we decided as a team to make it difficult and not let it come down to an easy final. One had to attack, and that was me, »said the Jegenstorfer woman after her coup. “I was the lucky one to drive today and I am grateful to my team. After my attack I realized at some point that it could work. For me it was like a time trial over 23 kilometers. That’s cool.” For Reusser, the 13th career victory was the first in the SD Worx tenu – and probably the most important so far.
