The stage took a toll on many riders, including former Tour champion Vincenzo Nibali, who conceded four minutes and 25 seconds. On the final climb of the day, Thibaut Pinot and Julian Alaphilippe attacked, finishing just behind De Gendt.

Hardy, 41, was arrested without incident and booked into the Myrtle Beach jail.

The tattooed star was arrested for a DUI charge after crashing his 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan in North Carolina a year ago, the Charlotte Observer reported. He served a 10-day jail sentence in October 2011 after pleading guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of conspiracy to traffic. The 41-year old returned to the WWE for the third time in 2017, and won the Smackdown tag team championship in April with his brother, Matt Hardy.

But from 1998 to 2003, he was a fan favourite for his stunts and athleticism, winning numerous tag team titles.
