Sergio Higuita, the Colombian Champion of Education First, was forced to leave the Tour de France. It was after an absurd fall caused by a change of direction of Bob jungels (Deceuninck-Quick Step) when they rolled in the peloton. The victim ended up crying uncontrollably.

The dans from Astana, and one of the initial favorites to the general, has decided to give it a try. Let’s remember that he is now 3’25 ” from the azzurro jersey, Simon Yates (Mitchelton-SCOTT). He has already achieved a gap of 40 seconds.

Spanish Sergio Samitier (Movistar) is now in a group chasing the head of the race. Lead the stage Matteo fabbro (Bora-Hansgrohe) 30 seconds ahead of those pursuers; 2 1/2 with the squad.

And there were only three: Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), Rubn guerreiro (Educaction First) and Matteo fabbro (Bora-Hansgrohe). They were finally joined at the head of the race Davide ballerini (Deceuninck-Quick Step), Julien Vermote (Cofidis), Rubn guerreiro (Educaction First), Sergio Samitier (Movistar), Martijn tusveld (Sunweb), Jean-Franois Bernard (Trek-Segafredo) and Giovanni visconti (Vini Zab-KTM).

These movements have increased the advantage over the squad. The stopwatch reads 2 minutes.

Both times they will have to do the Recanati and Loreto climbs. To make the route even more interesting, the end of the stage corresponds to the climb to the last mentioned stop.

A day with a very interesting route and in which the stage victory is expected to come out of a flight. Will we also see gaps in the general? Simon Yates (Mitchelton-SCOTT) try not to be against him and, thus, keep the azzurro jersey.
