By crossing the finish line first, the Austrian Félix Gall gave his team a 22nd victory in the Tour de France. He also consolidates his place in the top 10 overall (8th).
10 seconds behind Jonas Vingegaard three days ago, Tadej Pogacar is 7 minutes and 35 seconds behind the yellow jersey after the 17th stage of the Tour de France. The Slovenian champion totally cracked in the Col de la Loze. His teammate Adam Yates was better. He was able to consolidate his third place and is positioned 10 minutes from the Danish rider. Carlos Rodriguez Cano took 4th place while Simon Yates moved up to 5th. The differences are huge. Tenth, david gaudu almost 18 minutes late.
Tadej Pogacar has just finished this stage at the end of the line, what an incredible image of the Slovenian. He finished at 5’46 minutes and in the yellow jersey.
The young Spanish rider from the Ineos team also lost a lot of time in this stage. He finished 4’44 from the winner.
The Briton does the right thing in the general classification since he consolidates his 3rd place and even returns to Tadej Pogacar for 2nd place.
It’s hard for the Dane Jonas Vingegaard on the last slope, but the victory is now assured except for a fall and retirement.
It’s done for Felix Gall who won the queen stage of this Tour de France ahead of Briton Simon Yates!
It remains the last slope for Felix Gall before lifting his arms in Courchevel.
The good operation of the day is also for Adam Yates who consolidates his 3rd place in the general classification.
The Slovenian will switch more than 4 minutes late at the top of the Col de la Loze, what a terrible failure.
The Dane notably recovered David Gaudu before the summit of the Col de la Loze. He is 1’30 behind Felix Gall.
The Austrian is at the top and takes the 40 points distributed for the jersey of the best climber. The rider is still 20 seconds ahead of Simon Yates.
The Austrian switches in a few minutes at the top of the Col de la Loze.
But what an image once again! The yellow jersey delayed by a motorcycle in the middle of the Col de la Loze, probably because the latter fell…
Tadej Pogacar said on his team’s radio, “I gave up, I died”. What a terrible sentence for the white jersey.
