THE SPORT SCAN – The Dutch team made a mistake when paying tribute to the Belgian time trial champion.
For the second consecutive year, the Jumbo-Visma won the Tour de France. At 26, Jonas Vingegaard offered himself a second coronation in Paris. With a final victory announced, the Dane took the time to enjoy on the streets of Paris.
It is also the entire Jumbo-Visma who savored these last kilometers of this Tour de France 2023. The Dutch team took the time to pose several times for the photo, before crossing the line all together. The runners also had bib number 6, that of Wout van Aert. The Belgian rider had abandoned the Tour to join his wife, who was giving birth to the couple’s second child.
It is quite naturally that the team wanted to greet its rider on social networks. Except that an error quickly arrived. The Jumbo-Visma thus identified Wout Poels, Dutch rider of the Bahrain Victorious, rather than Wout van Aert.
The error was obviously quickly edited but Twitter is ruthless.
