A silent finish and fluffed lines won't spoil Søren Kragh Andersen's Tour de France stage win

The Dane mistakenly attacked too early on the run-in, but sailed across a finish line where he 'had to celebrate on his own' due to restrictions on spectators

Having nearly fluffed his lines after mistakenly attacking after team-mate Tiesj Benoot was already up the road, not even an empty final 100m could ruin the relief Søren Kragh Andersen felt as he won stage 14 of the 2020 Tour de France.

"Luckily I didn't ruin anything," the Dane half-joked after he pulled off a perfect attack in the closing kilometres to double Sunweb's stage win tally this Tour.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
