Tour de France · one hour ago

Another 28.5 km - Romain Bardet is once again angry with the wait-and-see attitude of Nairo Quintana in the chasing group. The Colombian from Movistar is logically waiting for Mikel Landa, who is busy with two teammates in a super fast pursuit. The lead of front runners Simon Yates and Simon Geschke runs to 45 seconds.

Tour de France · one hour ago

Another 30 km - André Amador now also joins Mikel Landa and Marc Soler. They extend their lead over the group of favorites to forty seconds.

  • Tour de France · one hour ago

    Another 38.7 km - The front runners are almost at the top of the steep Mur de Péguère and are now even driving through the fog. Mur de Péguère can rightly be called a col from the high mountains.

    Tour de France · one hour ago

    Still 39.4 km - It is therefore the Dutch Jumbo-Visma that leads the dance in the group of favorites. Laurens De Plus stomps on his pedals, with leader Steven Kruijswijk in his wake. George Bennett is also among them.

    Tour de France · one hour ago

    Another 39.7 km - David Gaudu hoists the white flag. The most important helper of Thibaut Pinot, who did long-time work on the Tourmalet yesterday, cannot follow the fast pace of Jumbo-Visma.
