Story by Thibaut Pinot wins the 14th stage in front of Juliana Alaphilippe

The home crowd had plenty to celebrate at the 14th Tour de France stage. Frenchman Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) jumped to the stage at the top of the turmalet, while his compatriot Julian Alaphilippe finished second and added his overall advantage to rivals such as Geraint Thomas (Ineos). Steven Kruijswijk (Jumbo-Visma) won the third place.

"Since the beginning of the tour I've been aiming for at this stage, this is the one I wanted, the mythical Tourmalet," Pinot said, who moved to sixth overall. "Now we're going in the third week, people will be tired, but here I feel the best."

Defense Champion Thomas lost 36 seconds a day. In addition, Alaphilippe now enjoys GC leadership ahead of Thomas just over two minutes.

The challenging mountain phase was a struggle for exhaustion on a 111-mile road from Tarbes to the end of the Tourmalet Summit. The early break, involving big names such as Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), only provided enough space for hunting on mountain and cross-country races. Great weather in turmoil proved too much for Romain Bardet (Ag2r-La Mondiale) at Col du Soulour in the middle of the day. Shortly thereafter, Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) also fell on the rise in the first category, caught again, and then fell forever.

The last rest of the vacation was included in the last climb, which is a victory on the stage of the GC group play. Groupama-FDJ joined Jumbo-Vismi and Movistar on the slopes of the Tourmalet in setting a high pace. Several big names came out before the finals, including Nairoba Quintana (Movistar), Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo), Dana Martin (UAE-Team Emirates) and Jakoba Fuglsanga (Astana), with Thomas and Rigobert Urán who lost their contact late. rise.

Only the fencer of the rider remained on the front until the yellow shirt had been subjected to a flamme rouge, but the group stayed more or less together up to the last 300 yards when Pinot waved forward and began to retreat. He kept winning at the stage six seconds ahead of Alaphilippe, while Kruijswijk was third.

Two seconds later, Emanuel Buchmann, Bora-Hansgrohe, crossed the line in the fourth place at the same time as the fifth placed Egan Bernal, whose Ineos team-mate Thomas was 36 seconds behind. The door ended over two minutes behind Pinot and Quintan 3:24. Yates and Dan Martin (UAE-Team Emirates) have gone further, seeing the hope of GC evaporating, while Bardet has gone even worse, returning home for 20 minutes.

Van Aert faces a two-month recovery

Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) is expected to recover in the next two months after a bad collision on the 13th stage of the Tour de France, Sporz said.

Van Aert suffered a deep slicing of his right leg when he collapsed in the barrier late in Pau time. The injury required surgery at the nearby hospital.

Nico Verhoeven from Jumbo-Visma told Sporz that the season was out of Aert's turn, but he also said Van Aert himself might have other plans.

"The surgeon talked about a two-month rehabilitation period in which he would not be allowed to ride a bicycle. But Wout saw it differently, "Verhoeven said. "Cyclists usually recover faster."

Schachmann came out of the Tour after breaking the bones in his hand

Max Schachmann of Bora-Hansgrohea came in from the right with the intention of giving Tour de France the lead, but his rocket of a shot rattled the crossbar.

According to his team, Schachmann got interruptions on the third, fourth and fifth metacarpal left hand after he hit the deck in the stage 13 times.

"I pushed to my limit and took a right angle too fast. That was the wrong judgment on my side, I thought they could take it tight because it opened, "he said in a statement from the team. – Unfortunately, that opened, but later than I thought. I already slipped and could not do much. The road was slipping there, my front wheel slipping and hit the ground.


He comes to the tour

The 15th stage of the tour will be another test for a yellow shirt.

The 185-mile route from Limoux to Foix includes four categorized ups, with three back-to-back finishes. Challenging parcours will certainly trigger fireworks until the second day of rest follows.
