Matteo Jorgenson ‘in the position I wanted to be in’ chasing Paris-Nice win

It’s been a very long time since two riders from the United States have been atop the general classification in a European stage race, particularly one of the prestige of Paris-Nice. But on Friday, Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a Bike) made one big step toward his goal of winning the race.

Jorgenson attacked on the final climb of stage 6, the Côte de la Colle-sur-Loup and was joined by compatriot Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates) and Mattias Skjelmose (Lidl-Trek). While Skjelmose played a tactical game to win the stage, McNulty and Jorgenson had bigger ambitions.
