Belgian rider Wout van Aert won the hilly fourth stage of the Tour de France and extended his overall lead after attacking strongly on the day's final climb on Tuesday. Van Aert shook up the peloton when he surged ahead up the last of the five climbs — a 900-meter ascent up Cote du Cap Blanc-Nez at a gradient of 7.5 % — about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the end. The 27-year-old Van Aert is considered one of the best multi-skilled riders in the world and is a former three-time cyclo-cross world champion and a one-day classics specialist.

And it's the most northern continent, ever. But I think Denmark deserves it," he said."Why? Because all the population is on bikes and because you love the Tour."Celebrations in Denmark are everywhere, with both people and cities decorating buildings and putting up tributes in race jersey colors.The mayor of Copenhagen, Sophie Haestorp Andersen, hopes that the city can inspire people to take up cycling to help with both health and the environment."My hope is that when the Tour de France, when they leave, they have seen a Copenhagen that is yellow, that is happy, that is inviting people in, not only for professional cyclists but also for everyday cyclists. And we hope to inspire the rest of the world and to go more in this direction, because it is a carbon neutral way of living and is also a healthy way of living," she said.
