Team BikeExchange-Jayco (France) - Press Release: Australian Michael Matthews put on a career best performance today with a breakaway masterclass, to claim his fourth Tour de France stage victory on stage 14 in Mende.
The victory hands Team BikeExchange-Jayco their second stage win of the Tour after Dylan Groenewegen’s sprint success on stage three, with Matthews showing his grit and determination to bounce back after two painfully tight second place finishes already in the race.
Matthews’ success came after he infiltrated a large 23 rider breakaway that eventually broke away after a furious start, and with the advantage rolling out to over 10 minutes, it was clear the stage would be decided amongst those in the breakaway.
