Well, another long title but it goes with the preceding image of Davide Formolo, who was part of this move – with one last grimace, he pulled away to the side, and Pogacar made his move. The only rider able to follow him was Richard Carapaz, Ineos Grenadiers, but even he couldn’t keep up with the reigning champion for long.

The glance behind, almost to see who has the audacity to follow, is a treat – Carapaz is full of grim determination, but you just know that he will be spitting Pogacar’s mud from his teeth before long.

The reigning champion went on to regain the Yellow Jersey at the end of this stage – Not surprising really, he is on outstanding form.

Wow!
