Jai Hindley wins the fifth stage of the Tour de France with Vingegaard dropping Pogacar


Jai Hindley is an Australian professional road cyclist who is currently a member of the UCI WorldTeam Bora-Hansgrohe. He is known for his climbing ability and has won several mountain races, including the Giro d’Italia, in 2022.

Hindley was born in Perth, Western Australia, and began cycling at a young age. He quickly rose through the ranks of the sport and became a professional in 2014. In his first season as a professional, he won the Under-23 Giro d’Italia.

Hindley continued to be successful in the following years, winning several races, including the Tour of the Basque Country in 2017 and the Tour of the Alps in 2018. His best result at a Grand Tour was achieved in 2020 when he finished second overall in the Giro d’Italia.

In 2022, Hindley finally achieved his dream of winning a Grand Tour, winning the Giro d’Italia. He became the first Australian to win the Giro since Cadel Evans in 2011.

Hindley is a talented and versatile rider who is capable of winning races in a variety of conditions. He is a vigorous climber and also has good time-trialling skills. He is a famous rider among fans and is seen as one of the sport’s future stars.

Hindley is a passionate and determined rider who always seeks a challenge. He is a role model for young cyclists and an inspiration to many people worldwide.

Hindley is a true champion and will continue to achieve great things.

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, Jai Hindley was known for his achievements in road racing, particularly in stage races and Grand Tours.

One of his most notable performances was during the 2020 Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy), one of the three prestigious Grand Tours in professional cycling. In that race, Jai Hindley, riding for Team Sunweb (now Team DSM), had an impressive performance and finished in second place. He narrowly missed winning the Giro d’Italia, losing to Tao Geoghegan Hart by only a few seconds in the final time trial. Despite not claiming the title, his performance earned him significant recognition in cycling.

Since my information is up to September 2021, there might have been more developments in Jai Hindley’s career beyond that point. I recommend checking more recent sources for the latest updates on his cycling career.

At that point, the question seemed whether UAE Team Emirates could make inroads into Hindley’s buffer or whether Pogačar would take matters into hand himself. Instead, it was Jumbo-Visma who laid down a marker in the yellow jersey group once Van Aert had dropped back, and their forcing created a selection that saw Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers), Romain Bardet (Team DSM-Firmenich) and Ben O’Connor (AG2R-Citroën) among those quickly distanced.

Adam Yates, Simon Yates (Jayco-AlUla) and David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) were the next to go, and once Sepp Kuss came to the front on the upper reaches of the climb, only Vingegaard and Pogačar were able to follow. It was a striking selection given that this was still only the fifth day of the Tour, and an even starker message arrived shortly afterwards when Vingegaard pressed clear of Pogačar to strike the first telling blow of their prize fight.

The Tour continues on Thursday with a rendezvous with the legendary Col du Tourmalet. The 145km Stage 6 also includes the Col d’Aspin and a summit showdown at Cauterets that could give the wounded Pogacar a prime opportunity to bite back at the first opportunity.
