Lennard Kämna has given up his hunt for a stage win at the 109th Tour de France and has dropped out due to a cold. This was assigned by his Bora-hansgrohe racing team on Tuesday before the 16th stage. The North German has been complaining about a small infection for days, and his condition had not improved even on the rest day. The corona test was negative for the 25-year-old and his teammates.

Due to his aggressive driving style, Kämna was one of the positive appearances from a German point of view at this year’s Tour of France, even if he was denied a happy ending. On the stage to La Planche des Belles Filles he was only 100 meters short of winning the day, and a few days later he missed the yellow jersey in Megeve by eleven seconds.
