The playing time (?) in the Dauphiné is over. Today and tomorrow there is a lot of climbing to be done in 2 short alpine stages. Today it goes from the start up to the Galibier, a descent further on is the Croix de Fer, both out of category. We arrive at the Montée de Vaujany of 2nd category. Follow the course from the start at 13:05, watch on One and you can livestream from 15:45.

  1. 3 p.m. 05. Another 60 km. The eighteen escapees drive a little further away from the pack, but everything remains playable. †
  2. 2’10”. The leading group comes close to the Croix de Fer. That is a very irregular climb with two vicious kinks in the beginning, a soft middle part and five annoying final kilometres. . 15 hours .
  3. 2 p.m. 54. Amador and Guglielmi are caught again. Conca and Gray have meanwhile blown back to the pack. †
  4. 14 hours 48. We are in the valley between the Télégraphe and the Croix de Fer. Amador and Guglielmi have moved away from the other front runners. †
  5. Sagiv gives up. A day of mixed feelings for Israel – Premier Tech. Omer Goldstein is in the run, but Chris Froome gave up before the start and now Sagiv is also getting into the team car. † 14 hours 43.
  6. Platoon at two minutes. The peloton finally gives some space to the breakaway. Tsgabu Grmay and Filippo Conca hang in between. † 14 hours 36.
  7. 2:30 p.m. Five leaders turn eighteen. We take a deep breath and give you the names: Andrey Amador, Andres Ardila, Bruno Armirail, Dries Devenyns, Mark Donovan, Kenny Elissonde, Matteo Fabbro, Omer Goldstein, Simon Guglielmi, Laurens Huys, Victor Lafay, Gregor Mühlberger, Pierre Rolland, Luis Leon Sanchez, Toms Skujins, Jasper Stuyven, Kevin Vermaerke and Carlos Verona. †
  8. 2 p.m. 26. Five men in front. Rolland and Fabbro have been joined by Amador, Ardila and Skujins. Amador is interesting at INEOS-Grenadiers as a possible springboard for Tao Geoghegan Hart. †
  9. 2 pm 21. Drop by drop the pursuers join Rolland and Fabbro. In the valley we may get a better overview of the situation. †
  10. 14 hours 15. The sinking of the Galibier will soon be interrupted by a nod to the top of the Col du Télégraphe. †
  11. Galibier. Of course Rolland takes the full pot on top of the Galibier. He and no one else earns the fifteen points. † 14 hours 08.
  12. 2 p.m. 05. A brief sketch of the situation: Rolland and Fabbro are leading the way. At twenty seconds our compatriot Huys, Ardila, Armirail and Lafay are hanging. Behind that, half a minute later we have the Belgian Devenyns, Amador, Elissonde, Goldstein, Skujins, Vermaerke and Verona. The peloton is almost a minute away. †
  13. 13h55. Rolland with Fabbro. Rolland (B&B Hotels) drives with Matteo Fabbro (BORA-hansgrohe) for about twenty seconds in front of a group of nine pursuers. In the peloton, Ineos sets the pace. †
  14. 13h 48. Rolland is not giving up. When his group is apprehended, he just leaves again. †
  15. 15″. No one has gotten more than a quarter of a minute head start for the time being. Guaranteed spectacle, such a short ride that goes straight uphill. . 13 hours 43.
  16. 13h 39. More people. The ten men turned 29, and Van Aert is also among them. The peloton still has the extended group within reach. †
  17. 13h34. Nine others join Rolland, with the pack a short distance away. †
