2014 Tour de France Lars Boom

Lars Boom wins fifth stage

9 Jul, 2014

After defending champion, Chris Froome, crashes twice during stage five and takes himself out of the race, Boom wins.  With just six kilometers remaining, Boom pulled out of the breakaway group. Fuglsang second came in second, and Vincenzo Nibali came in third. The course was difficult due to cobble stoned areas and rain.
