That's right: Richard Carapaz (INEOS Grenadiers) has the most mountain points since yesterday.

Today he wears the polka-dot jersey, which he takes over from Tadej Pogacar (UEA Team Emirates).

The latter is still the leader in the youth classification and starts the day's ride in the white jersey.

Jumbo-Visma director Zeeman devastated by exclusion

Sports director Merijn Zeeman of Jumbo-Visma is very upset that he had to leave the Tour de France yesterday.

He apologizes on Twitter for his behavior after the seventeenth stage.

Zeeman became angry when a UCI commissioner damaged Primoz Roglic's bike during a check.

"I did not behave correctly verbally towards a UCI commissioner who wanted to do a bike check on Primoz's bike. I got angry because the commissioner independently removed the bracket (part of the frame, ed.) From the bike. from Primoz. During this dismantling, Primoz's bike was damaged. Despite this incident, I should have kept my cool and approached the UCI commissioner respectfully. I regret that I did not do this. "
