Stage 19Albertville / Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc

Start 13h10 (Local time)
  • Romain Bardet delivers first French win

    Romain Bardet gave the hosting nation its first stage victory in stage 19 of the 103rd Tour de France. He rode away from the yellow jersey group in the downhill preceding the final ascent to Le Bettex to catch lone escapee Rui Costa. Race leader Chris Froome and runner up Bauke Mollema crashed in that downhill, with more consequences for the Dutchman than the yellow jersey. Bardet moved up to second overall with two days to go.
