    Withdrawals , Crashes, Protests and a debut tour win , todayís stage had a bit of everything. Belgiums Jasper Philpsen won his first TDF stage today in a sprint finish , Wout Van Aert was second with Mads Pedersen in third . A bad day for race leader Jonas Vinegaardís Jumbo Visma team as they lost two riders to injuries. Vinegaard continues to lead the race with an 02:22 advantage Iíve Pogacar. Much needed rest tomorrow

    Canadian Hugo Houle won todayís stage in dominant style . Thereís no change in the overall lead with Vinegaard still in the yellow jersey. Another mountain stage tomorrow luckily itís only 130km

    Pogacar and Vinegaard almost rode each other to standstill today as they battled each other for the stage win in a mountain top finish, Pogacar claimed the win with Vinegaard in second but failed to make any real dent in Vinegaards overall lead , Geraint Thomas lost time but is still in third place. Final day in the mountains tomorrow so itís all or nothing for Pogacar , he needs to put a real dent in Vinegaards lead and be on the top step of the podium on Sunday

    It looks like itís all over, barring an accident
    Brilliant teamwork from Jumbo Visma sets up Vingegaard to take the last mountain stage and increase his lead
    Pogacar will probably get some time back in the TT but it wonít be nearly enough.

    After todayís stage it looks like the top three positions are all but settled, canít honestly see any other outcome now , the green jersey looks like it will go to Wout Van Aert , with Vinegaard taking the Polka Dot jersey to go with the yellow one , Pogacar may take some solace in winning the white jersey, but itís not the colour he was looking for. 189 km and flat tomorrow a day for the sprinters before the TT on Saturday.

    Jonas Vinegaard took overall victory and also won the King of the mountains title, Tadej Pogacar came second and also was young rider of the tour. Geraint Thomas was an excellent third with Wout Van Aert winning the points title

    Another excellent tour with lots of drama, my personal highlight was Tom Piddockís stage win and his celebration afterwards

    Tragic that Gino Mader died during the Tour of Switzerland after falling down a ravine. Only 26 years old

    RIP

    Kudos to him for carrying on. Looked in agony and was wincing at pretty much every pedal stroke. EF will be disappointed at this for sure!

    What a superb final 2k.

    Loads of jostling/bumping to get position and given the speed Iím surprised no one went down.

    Philpsen with excellent finish!

    Yep, gives me the heeby jeebies a bit when the bumping starts at that speed with so little protection over all that tarmac! Cavendish 6th. Not the train he's had in other years but he's up there.

    When you see what happened to Jakobsen, fractured skull, 10 teeth lost and lots of internal injuries. Induced coma and all whilst sprinting
