Tour de France a few seconds ago

Another 120 km 

- BORA-hansgrohe is wreaking havoc in the sprinters' guild.

We note Sam Bennett, Caleb Ewan, Bryan Coquard and André Greipel in the groups behind the thinned peloton.

Peter Sagan is obliged to his stand to crown the work of his teammates with a stage victory.

Tour de France 7 minutes ago

Another 126 km 

- Stefan Küng is the first to top the Col du Béal, a climb of the second category, and has already been driving for half a minute ahead of the released pursuer Edwards Theuns.

Due to the fast pace of BORA-hansgrohe, the peloton already follows in just under three minutes.



This is the scoring on the Col du Béal:


  • Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) - 5 points

  • Edward Theuns (Trek-Segafredo) - 3 points

  • Lennart Kämna (BORA-hansgrohe) - 2 points

  • Felix Grossschartner (BORA-hansgrohe) - 1 point

    Another 127 km 

    - There are also developments at the front of the race.

    Edwards Theuns cannot keep up with the pace of Stefan Küng on the Col du Béal and has to release.

    The Swiss is now the lonely escape in this fourteenth stage.

    - The next looser is a fact in the peloton and that is good news for BORA-hansgrohe.

    - BORA-hansgrohe, Peter Sagan's team, is stamping hard on the Col du Béal, which leads to sprinters Caleb Ewan and André Greipel being released.

    The first goal for the German team has been successful.

    Tour de France 27 minutes ago

    Another 132 km

    - Küng and Theuns are working on the climb of the Col du Béal.

    No spectators at the finish


    Around the finish of today's and Sunday stages, no spectators are allowed within a radius of a few hundred meters.

    Tour organizer ASO has decided that.

    The Tour will pass through areas where code red applies due to the corona virus in the coming days.

    Whether the rule also applies to the stages after Sunday is not yet known.

    Many riders were concerned about the audience, with some fans not wearing a face mask, but cheering the riders a lot.
