Tour de France: Quick-Step Floors fall short in Quimper

The fifth stage in the 2018 Tour de France on the rolling roads between Lorient and Quimper was expected to be a good chance for the Quick-Step Floors team to get a third victory and potentially the yellow jersey. The roller coaster final kilometre suited punchy fast men. With Philippe Gilbert, Julian Alaphilippe and Bob Jungels, the Belgian team had three strong cards to play. To get that win, the so-called 'wolfpack' would have to fight their way around current race leader Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing Team) and world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe).
