The Peloton passes its COVID test and the tour continues. A day for the breakaway a strong 23 man group got outfront and it was a day for the best of them. Lennard Kaemna took the win over Ineos’ Richard Carapaz, his first grand tour win which follows his 2nd place on stage 13 and his win on stage 4 of the Dauphine.
Behind the break was a slow day for the GC guys, up until Pogacar decided to test everyones legs and attack in the final KM’s. No damage done to the top 7 but Nairo Quintana lost 35 seconds and dropped to 10th oerall, swapping spots with Tom Dumoulin.
Tomorrow the Tour de France hits the queen stage, with the most climbing and highest ascent of this years tour. In 9 of the last 10 tours the winner of the stage with the highest ascent was not the overall winner, so will we see a mix up in who wins tomorrow and who remains in podium contention?
