Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty) claimed a second sprint victory on a chaotic uphill finish in Colombey-les-Deux-Églises, with Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) forced to settle for second place once again.

The Eritrean made history on stage 3 as he became the first black African rider to win a stage of the Tour de France, and he was once again the strongest of the sprinters, this time winning in the green jersey as his fairytale Tour continues.
