Before the classification men can dust off their climbers’ legs, we are presented with a genuine transition stage to Gap in the Dauphiné. With a leading role again for yellow jersey Wout van Aert? Follow the stage live from 11.35 am. The broadcast starts at 3.25 pm.

  1. Leon Heinschke. The end of the story is also for Leon Heinschke. The young German from DSM gets off. After Kwiatkowski and Jones, he is already the third rider to give up this race. † 14 hours 08.
  2. 2 p.m. 07. Gap has been the arrival place in the Tour de France or in the Dauphiné several times. Each time, a refugee won the stage. Rui Costa (2013), Yuri Trofimov (2014), Ruben Plaza (2015) and Matteo Trentin (2019) were then allowed to raise their hands. †
  3. 2 p.m. The French army in front is working well together. The lead extends to 4’20”, despite Jumbo’s leading work in the peloton.
  4. 13 hours 55. We are halfway through this stage and the lead of the leading group keeps fluctuating around four minutes. Jumbo-Visma has taken the lead in the peloton. The Italian Andrea Bagioli is currently driving virtually in yellow. †
  5. 13 hours 52. Bruno Armirail is the only rider in the leading group who does not yet have a professional victory to his name. The 28-year-old Frenchman of FDJ finished 16th in Liège-Bastogne-Liège this year. Veteran Pierre Rolland has already won 12 stages in his pro career. †
  6. 13h 43. Both groups are downstairs and are allowed to pedal again. Does the chase race break loose or does the leading group get a safe conduct towards the end of the stage? †
  7. 1 p.m. 40. Warren Barguil. It seems like an eternity ago when Warren Barguil won two stages in the 2017 Tour and took home the mountain jersey. Can he bring out his best form today? He is still only 30 years old. †
  8. 13 hours 34. The front runners are almost down and so start a long stretch that runs false flat to the top. The peloton has barely come closer and follows at 3’45”.
  9. 13 hours 23. After a descent of about 20 kilometers, the riders continue on a long false flat towards the last real climb of the day. The Col de Sabre.  †
  10. 13h 19. Rolland is the first to the top. We are at the top and Pierre Rolland is reinforcing his leadership position in the mountains classification. The Frenchman grabs 5 points. Barguil, Bagioli and Ferron have to make peace with the places of honour. †
  11. 13:15. The virtual yellow of Bagioli is apparently not to the liking of Wout van Aert. Jumbo-Visma leads the pack and tries to keep the time difference within limits.  †
  12. 4 minutes. With the top of the Col de Rousset in sight, the lead of the 7 leaders is increasing. The difference with Van Aert and co is 4 minutes. † 13 h 13.
  13. 1 p.m. 10. Kwiatkowski with knee pain. Meanwhile, team Ineos has brought some more clarity about Kwiatkowski’s retirement. “Unfortunately, Kwiatkowski had to withdraw from the Dauphiné due to knee pain. Time to rest with the Tour ahead.” †
  14. Col de Rousset (2nd cat.). There is the Col de Rousset. An ascent of 6 kilometers at 5%. Once at the top we are at an altitude of 1223 meters. The roof of this stage. † 13h 05.
  15. 13 hours 04. The chance of a victory for the refugees is quite high. It won’t be easy to check. Wout van Aert.
  16. 13h 01. Bagioli. Andrea Bagioli (Quick Step – Alpha Vinyl) is in 26th place in the standings and follows Wout Van Aert at 3’20”. Thanks to the lead of the leading group, the young Italian is now flirting with the virtual leading position. .
