Ivan Sosa sealed overall victory at the Tour de la Provence as the Grenadiers continued their strong start to the year.
The Colombian laid the foundations for success in Saturday’s rousing win on Mont Ventoux, and in Sunday’s finale he was well protected by his teammates, crossing the line safely in Salon-de-Provence.
With a fifth career stage race victory at just 23, Sosa was joined on the podium by compatriot and teammate Egan Bernal. The 2019 Tour de France winner slipped one place to third on the final day as Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) grabbed some early time bonuses.
The Grenadiers helped set the pace for much of the day, with Eddie Dunbar combining with the sprinter teams at the head of the race.
