Eight of the best photos from stage seven of the Tour de France 2019

The best snaps from the longest day of this year's race

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.
