Soren Kragh Andersen claimed his second stage win of the Tour de France as Primoz Roglic stayed in pole position to claim the yellow jersey.

Andersen, who also prevailed on stage 14, took stage 19 with an attack 16 kilometres from the finish line of the 166.5-kilometre ride from Bourg-en-Bresse to Champagnole.

It was an attack to which the chasing pack had no answer, the Team Sunweb rider quickly building an insurmountable advantage.

He crossed the line 53 seconds ahead of his nearest challengers, but the focus will now shift firmly to Roglic and the overall race leader's Slovenian compatriot Tadej Pocagar.

That pair finished back in the peloton, over seven and a half minutes adrift of Kragh Andersen.

Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) remains 57 seconds ahead of Pogacar (Team Emirates) with Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana) a further 30 seconds back.

They will battle it out for the general classification in Saturday's time trial before the Tour comes to an end with a processional final flat stage to the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

Kragh Andersen's previous victory, on a flat stage from Clermont-Ferrand to Lyon, saw him attack three kilometres from the finish.

His push for victory this time, from a 12-man group at the front after Matteo Trentin (CCC Team) failed with an attack, was more ambitious but no less effective as he had plenty in his legs to surge clear.

As he entered the final kilometres, Kragh Andersen could be heard asking for confirmation of his time gap, unaware of the massive lead he had built.

He never had any need to worry about his victory being threatened, the Dane well worthy of the plaudits he will take before the battle for the GC crown takes centre stage.

 

KRAGH ANDERSEN'S UNBELIEVABLE LEAD

Kragh Andersen was left stunned by the decisive nature of his advantage, saying in his post-race interview: "In the last kilometre, when I was screaming 'Can you confirm one minute?', I didn't believe it."

Of his attack, he said: "I was thinking the same... 'Here's all the best riders in the world, how do I beat these guys?'. I was thinking, 'If I get a small gap maybe they start looking at each other', that's what happened.

"Two wins in the Tour de France... I'm speechless. It's a memory for life. I'm just super happy."

WHAT'S NEXT?

The Tour will effectively be decided by Saturday's penultimate stage, which takes the form of a mountain time trial from Lure to La Planche des Belles Filles.

Michal Kwiatkowski and Richard Carapaz gave Team INEOS a Tour de France fillip as they crossed the stage 18 finish line arm in arm.

Riders of Team INEOS, previously known as Team Sky, have won seven of the previous eight Tours, and each of the previous five, but their great yellow jersey hope and defending champion Egan Bernal withdrew from this year's race on Wednesday due to a back injury.

However, there was better news a day later as Carapaz seized the king of the mountains jersey and Kwiatkowski won the first stage of his career in his seventh Tour.

The team-mates were well clear of their rivals and were involved in discussions about how they should approach the finish line, with Carapaz just holding back to allow Kwiatkowski to marginally cross first.

Wout van Aert, a two-time stage winner at this year's Tour, was third, ahead of general classification leader Primoz Roglic and nearest rival Tadej Pogacar, who remains 57 seconds behind his fellow Slovenian in the race for yellow with only three stages to go.

Carapaz had been battling Marc Hirschi in the mountains but that ended when the Swiss youngster crashed with just under 80 kilometres to go, initially losing a minute on the leaders and falling further back as the race continued.

There was little to trouble yellow jersey holder Roglic, though, and at one point he put his hand on Pogacar's back in a relaxed manner while the two chatted with 14km to go.

Richie Porte, now fourth in the GC standings, had to fight back from suffering a puncture and he, along with Mikel Landa, were in the group to finish a second after Roglic and Pogacar.

 

A day to remember for Kwiatkowski

Kwiatkowski has been an under-appreciated cog to many outsiders amid the Team INEOS and Team Sky success of recent years, but he finally got his moment in the spotlight.

"I just can't describe how grateful I am to the whole team and to Richard," he said afterwards. "That was an incredible day for us and I will never forget that.

"I've had some nice moments in cycling but that was a new experience. I've got goosebumps because I knew the gap was so big that we were going to make it.

"Both of us enjoyed the last kilometres, that was incredible."

WHAT'S NEXT?
The final stage before the decisive time trial is a 166.5km flat run from Bourg-en-Bresse to Champagnole where the sprinters will get the chance to hit the headlines.

Colombian Miguel Angel Lopez won stage 17 of the Tour de France as Primoz Roglic extended his lead in the race. 

Astana's Lopez pulled clear of the other general classification contenders at the summit of Col de la Loze for his first ever stage win, beating Roglic into second by 15 seconds. 

That victory moved Lopez into third overall, while Roglic moved almost a minute clear at the top of the pack as Tadej Pogacar finished in third. Rigoberto Uran, who went into the stage in third, was almost two minutes back.

The 170km stage from Grenoble started shortly after defending champion Egan Bernal had pulled out of the race after falling away from contention as a result of a back injury. 

Richard Carapaz was the only survivor of a break which had featured Tuesday's winner Lennard Kamna, but he was caught with 3km to go.

Lopez powered ahead for victory after passing Carapaz, while Roglic rode away from Pogacar in the closing stages. 

At the start of the day, Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Sam Bennett used the intermediate sprint to add two points to his advantage in the green jersey, which now stands at 47 points.

Pogacar, meanwhile, led the peloton over the Madeleine and added the king of the mountains polka dot jersey to his best young rider's white jersey. 

 

Colombian altitude helped me - Lopez 

An emotional Lopez said he felt at home throughout the stage and was prepared for how tough it was thanks to plenty of practice in his native Colombia.

"I'm really happy and very emotional," he said. "We worked really hard for this and it wasn't easy to get there. We were confident because we knew the terrain suited us. It was over 2000 metres of altitude, like being at home in Colombia and so it was an opportunity for me. We fought for this stage."

WHAT'S NEXT?
Thursday's stage will see the riders undertake the 168km journey from Meribel to La Roche-sur-Foron, which runs parallel to the borders with Italy and Switzerland. They will face five intermediate climbs before a downhill finish into La Roche-sur-Foron.

Reigning champion Egan Bernal has withdrawn from the Tour de France ahead of stage 17 after falling well out of contention.

The Team INEOS rider cracked in Sunday's stage 15 on the Grand Colombier to drop from third to 13th and lost more time on yellow jersey holder Primoz Roglic on Tuesday.

Bernal, who became the youngest winner of the Tour since World War II when triumphing last year, indicated he intended to see out the final four competitive stages.

However, on the morning of Wednesday's queen stage to Col de la Loze, INEOS announced the Colombian will now save himself for other upcoming races.

Team principal Dave Brailsford said in a statement: "We have taken this decision with Egan's best interests at heart. 

"Egan is a true champion who loves to race, but he is also a young rider, with many Tours ahead of him and at this point, on balance, we feel it is wiser for him to stop racing."

Bernal slipped to 16th in the standings on Tuesday, just over 19 minutes off the lead, and he feels the decision to abandon the Tour is the right choice.

"This is obviously not how I wanted my Tour de France to end, but I agree that it is the right decision for me in the circumstances," he said.

"I have the greatest respect for this race and I am already looking forward to coming back in the years ahead."

Tadej Pogacar remains within 40 seconds of leader and compatriot Roglic heading into stage 17, with Rigoberto Uran one minute and 34 seconds behind in third.

Lennard Kamna landed his first Tour de France stage victory on a day when the overall race leaders saved their legs for what could be a make-or-break Wednesday.

As Germany's Kamna celebrated his maiden triumph, the picture at the top of the general classification after stage 16 remained unchanged, with Primoz Roglic and Tadej Pogacar remaining 40 seconds apart.

The peloton arrived at Villard-de-Lans a full 16 minutes and 48 seconds after Kamna crossed the line, having shown no interest at any time in following the breakaway pack.

Two monumental climbs in stage 17 could prove telling, so there was no need to exert excess energy on the 164-kilometre ride from La Tour-du-Pin.

It was nonetheless a day where a gaggle of riders out of GC contention took the opportunity to shine.

An early breakaway grew into a 23-rider squadron, splintering intermittently as the stage progressed.

Quentin Pacher made a solo break from the pack as they began the ascent to the town of Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte, which in 1968 hosted Olympic ski jumping, but he could not sustain the increase in pace.

The testing category one climb caught up with the Tour debutant, and his bold dart was reined in by four others, with Ecuador's Richard Carapaz (Team INEOS) leading the next burst that shook off Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe.

Kamna (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Swiss Sebastien Reichenbach (Groupama-FDJ) followed him, and it was Kamna who sprinted away to take the king of the mountain points, with Pierre Rolland having earlier claimed priceless points when he was first to climb the Cote de Revel.

This break was to prove decisive, with Kamna powering ahead on the open road to take the line first, a minute and 27 seconds ahead of Carapaz, with Reichenbach in third spot, 29 seconds further adrift.

Tadej Pogacar will not allow sentiment to hold him back as he seeks to secure Tour de France glory at the expense of friend and compatriot Primoz Roglic.

The Slovenian duo are leading the way this year with Roglic in yellow, 40 seconds ahead of Pogacar, who has the honour of the young rider's white jersey after winning stage 15.

With Roglic's Jumbo-Visma team setting a blistering pace across many of the stages so far, he looks best placed to take the title from Egan Bernal after the Team INEOS rider cracked on Sunday to fall well off the pace.

But 21-year-old Pogacar, who looks up to the man nine years his senior, is dreaming of standing atop the podium in Paris himself.

"We [he and Roglic] have a good relationship, but on the road we all want to win every time because this is cycling, this is sport and everyone wants to win," the UAE Team Emirates rider said.

"So, yes, on the road we respect each other. I look up to him, he's a really strong guy, a good rider.

"I have a lot of respect for him, but if I can win I will take the opportunity. 

"Jumbo-Visma is the strongest team this year probably, especially this Tour, but we also have a strong team. We are confident and if we can take some time that would be perfect.

"The battle for yellow is not finished, but I cannot tell you exactly how we are going to fight for it because then there's no surprise."

Speaking during the Tour's second rest day, Pogacar was asked if he could have envisaged finding himself in this position.

"No, not really," he replied. "Before the start of the Tour I was confident in my shape, I knew that I was prepared.

"But to be here on the second rest day with two stages and second in the GC [general classification] with the white jersey, it's a little bit hard to believe if someone would have said that to me.

"But now we are here and we will fight to the end."

Tadej Pogacar claimed victory on stage 15 of the Tour de France to close the gap on overall leader Primoz Roglic, as Egan Bernal's hopes of back-to-back titles came to an end.

Team Emirates rider Pogacar held off Roglic in a sprint finish on the Grand Colombier to take the win and 10 bonus seconds on the line, cutting the deficit in the general classification to 40 seconds.

Pogacar made his dash for the line with 100 metres to go and had the energy to pip yellow jersey holder Roglic, settling up a likely all-Slovenian shoot-out for the Tour title.

Defending champion Bernal will not be in the mix after the Team INEOS rider struggled to maintain the relentless pace set by Jumbo-Visma.

He began the day in third, 59 seconds off the pace, but is now out of contention in 13th after losing over seven minutes on the 17km climb to the summit.

A group of 12 riders entered the final kilometre together, with Trek–Segafredo's Richie Porte taking third place, five seconds behind the pacesetters.

Rigoberto Uran moved up to third in the general classification standings, one minute and 34 seconds behind Roglic, after finishing ninth on a gruelling stage 15.

POGACAR: MAYBE PRIMOZ WILL CRACK

Pogacar will not give up on claiming the yellow jersey without a fight, with this his second stage victory, but the fearless Slovenian acknowledged it will be incredibly difficult catching compatriot Roglic.

"Jumbo-Visma set a really high pace all day and it made it a really difficult stage so I was just waiting for the sprint at the end and I'm so happy to win again," Pogacar said.

"The plan is to win the Tour de France. Primoz Roglic seems unstoppable but today Bernal cracked and maybe one day myself or Primoz will crack - there are still a lot of opportunities ahead."

WHAT'S NEXT?

After a rest day on Monday, week three begins with a 164km route to Villard-de-Lans, taking in narrow roads, difficult climbs and gorges. It contains five categorised climbs, culminating in the finish atop Villard-de-Lans.

Soren Kragh Andersen claimed his first stage triumph in the Tour de France after a blistering attack at the end of Stage 14 on Saturday.

Team Sunweb rider Andersen pounced with three kilometres to go in Lyon, with his late solo attack ultimately enough to clinch a surprising stage win.

In a sprint finish for the remaining podium places, Luka Mezgec (Mitchelton-Scott) edged out Simone Consonni (Cofidis), while Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) – who crossed the line in 29th – retained the yellow jersey.

With Roglic keeping things steady on the 194km route from Clermont-Ferrand to Lyon, Sunweb timed their attack to perfection.

Tiesj Benoot went first on the penultimate climb, and though he was caught, Marc Hirschi attacked with just under four kilometres remaining, opening up a gap which Kragh Andersen exploited.

Peter Sagan crossed over in fourth place, with the Slovakian closing to within 43 points of Sam Bennett in the points classification.

A DREAM COME TRUE

It was a remarkable push from Kragh Andersen, and from a youthful though inexperienced Sunweb team.

Sunweb have no contender for the yellow jersey, but they put together an excellent team ride on Saturday, leaving Kragh Andersen overcome with emotion.

"I feel very emotional. I've dreamed about this but it's hard to say you're good enough until you do it. I'm amazed," he said.

"I had really good legs the whole day but you never know how good the other guys are.

"It took me a long time in the Tour to get confidence in myself but I knew if I was suffering then they were suffering."

Sunweb, who also had Casper Phillip Pedersen finishing in the top five, are 18th in the team standings.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Stage 15 is a 174.5km mountainous route from Lyon to Grand Colombier, as Le Tour makes its way towards the Alps, giving defending champion Egan Bernal – one of the world's best climbers – a chance to shine. A rest day follows on Monday.

Romain Bardet was forced to abandon his latest bid for Tour de France glory following a heavy crash on Friday, despite finishing the 13th stage of the race.

The 29-year-old Frenchman, riding for the AG2R La Mondiale team, was one of several riders involved in a nasty incident near the midway point of the 191.5-kilometre stage.

He was able to continue but his team later said he would be withdrawn from the race due to concussion.

Bardet sat fourth in the general classification before Friday's stage, just 30 seconds behind leader Primoz Roglic, and said the end to his race was "quite the opposite of what I expected".

He drifted to 11th in the standings by the end of the stage and accepted his fate when the team pulled him out.

"The crash was severe, downhill at high speed, and I struggled all the rest of the day," Bardet said.

"The medical examinations confirmed what I already suspected, and I am not able to continue in the race.

"I know that my team-mates will give their best to finish the Tour de France with strong performances."

A team statement said: "Romain is suffering from a concussion the intensity of which he showed signs at the end of the stage, which necessitated that our medical team insist he undergo a brain scan at the Clermont Ferrand University Hospital, with the help of Dr Mathieu Abott of AS Montferrand.

"The CET scan did not reveal any lesions. However, Romain Bardet must stop all his sporting activities for the moment, and he will therefore not be able to take part in the start of the stage tomorrow."

Bardet has achieved five top-10 general classification finishes in his Tour de France career, going closest to overall victory when he was runner-up to Chris Froome in the 2016 race.

Marc Hirschi secured his first grand tour stage victory after producing a brilliant break on the 12th day of racing in the Tour de France, as Primoz Roglic stayed in the yellow jersey.

Team Sunweb rider Hirschi, a 22-year-old Swiss who won the under-23 road race world title in 2018, showed he belongs at the highest level now with a commanding performance.

He tore clear inside the final 30 kilometres on the ride from Chauvigny to Sarran Correze and was never directly challenged from that point.

It was a performance that hinted at possible greater successes further on in his career, with Hirschi following a second-place finish on stage two and third spot on stage nine by crossing the stage 12 finish line a comprehensive winner.

Danish rider Kasper Asgreen (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) and Spaniard Imanol Erviti (Movistar) were passed with 42.5 kilometres left to race, marking the end of the race's initial breakaway.

Tiesj Benoot and Sunweb's Soren Kragh Andersen led that burst to the front, joined by Movistar's Marc Soler, who soon attacked to go it alone. Despite dropping back into a group of six, Soler mounted another charge to pull clear for a second time, but it would not be his day.

Instead, Hirschi made his move on the category two Suc au May climb, and soon stretched 30 seconds clear of Soler and Maximilian Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe).

The pace of Hirschi's descent was as remarkable as his power uphill, and he retained the half-minute gap with 15 kilometres remaining before widening his lead on the road to the finish line.

France's Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) made an effort to narrow the gap to Soler and Schachmann, in the vain hope of then mounting a challenge to Hirschi.

In the end it was Pierre Rolland who crossed the line second, with Kragh Andersen third. Roglic was in a bunch two minutes and 30 seconds off the pace, his standing as general classification leader unaffected. 

Tour de France race director Christian Prudhomme and four team staff members have tested positive for coronavirus.

It was confirmed on Tuesday that 59-year-old Prudhomme, who is not part of the 'race bubble', had been forced to self-isolate having contracted the virus.

One staff member from each of Team Cofidis, AG2R La Mondiale, Team Ineos and Mitchelton-Scott had also returned a positive test and been forced to leave the bubble.

However, the race resumed with its 10th stage on Tuesday with all 22 teams taking part as every rider had returned a negative result from the 841 tests administered on Monday and Tuesday.

On Prudhomme, a statement from the Tour read: "The testing campaign revealed that Christian Prudhomme has tested positive for COVID-19.

"The director of the Tour de France, taking his fourth tests in one month, will now quarantine for seven days.

"Although he was not part of the 'race bubble' and had not been in direct contact with any of the riders and their entourage, Christian Prudhomme still decided to get tested."

Prudhomme was in the lead car with French prime minister Jean Castex during Saturday's eighth stage.

Castex later tweeted to say he would follow medical guidance having learned about Prudhomme's positive test.

He wrote: "I will follow the protocol developed by the government and the health authorities. It applies to everyone.

"I will exercise the fullness of my functions by scrupulously respecting the health recommendations."

Primoz Roglic took the yellow jersey from Adam Yates as Tadej Pogacar won stage nine of the Tour de France.

Mitchelton-Scott rider Yates picked up the yellow jersey on Wednesday after Julian Alaphilippe was given a 20-second time penalty, but Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) took advantage of his slide ahead of Monday's rest day.

Yates was dropped on the final climb of the 153-kilometre mountain route from Pau to Laruns and consequently fell to eighth in the general classification, one minute and two seconds off the pace.

Rain made conditions tricky for riders during the early stages but Marc Hirschi (Team Sunweb) was in charge after the Col de la Hourcere and stretched his lead to more than four minutes on the approach to the final climb.

But the steepness of the category one Col de Marie Blanque proved too much for Hirschi as a quintet of riders caught him in the final two kilometres, with Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) sealing his first stage win in the Tour and Roglic taking the yellow jersey, despite the pair almost downing each other when touching wheels earlier in the race.

Roglic's lead is by no means emphatic, however, as defending champion Egan Bernal (Team INEOS) sits just 21 seconds adrift in the general classification.

YATES COULD NOT HANG ON

Yates has looked a strong contender over the past few days, but Sunday was a step too far.

Stage nine provided a tough reminder of the standards required and the quality of those who had been chasing him down.

In the end, Yates ruefully accepted there were other riders simply in better condition than he was, but he is still feeling optimistic.

"A hard day," he said. "The break didn't really go until the climb. I did my best. I gave everything I could to hang on.

"I think we can be proud of what we did and freshen up now on rest day. I did what I could, but there were some guys in a better condition than me. It is what it is.

"I said from the beginning, there's a lot of stages in the last week that suit me quite well, so I'll have a go and I'll see what I can do."
