The longest day of the Tour de France 2019 (running at 230km) eventually culminated in a bunch sprint, with Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) pipping Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) on the line, the Australian once again denied a first Tour de France stage victory.
With not much racing going on for the majority of the day, the photographers had their work cut out. Here are their best snaps from stage seven.

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.
