In this episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau recap a thrilling stage in the mountains.
Team Jumbo-Visma dominated on the final climb and yet Primoz Roglic saw his overall lead trimmed by a handful of seconds by stage winner Tadej Pogacar.
The day turned out badly for Ineos Grenadiers, whose leader and defending champion Egan Bernal cracked early on the final climb to Grand Colombier and lost more than seven minutes and any chance of winning the Tour.
Going into the second rest day the Tour looks beautifully poised between the two Slovenians Roglic and Pogacar but what happens next?
