Next stage

The mountains are once again on hand to try to move the favorites and shake up Tadej Pogacar. First, the riders will climb the Col du Bac, third category, and after the intermediate sprint in Lavelanet, come three passes in the next 40 kilometers: the climb to the Col de Montségur and the Col de la Croix des Morts, both second category, and the Côte de Galinagues, third category. The last mountain difficulty will be the second category Col de Saint-Louis, which also delivers a bonus and is located 17 kilometers from the finish.

Stage 12 summary

155 riders took the start of the twelfth stage of the Tour de France. One of the most notable casualties was Peter Sagan (Bora - Hansgrohe), who dropped out due to knee problems. A breakaway of 13 riders was established, including Edward Theuns, Julian Alaphilippe, Nils Politt, among others.

Politt was first up the Côte du belvédère de Tharaux (3rd category). UAE Team Emirates set a steady pace, which allowed the lead to grow gradually to almost 16 minutes. It would be an attack by Harry Sweeny with 40 kilometers to go that would break the harmony of the breakaway with an attack that saw Stefan Küng, Imanol Erviti and Nils Politt, who went first in the intermediate sprint.

However, on a climb 15 kilometers from the finish, Sweeny tried to unhook Küng without success and Politt tried his defining attack with 13 kilometers to go, to which Erviti and Sweeny were unable to respond. In the end it was victory for the German and for Bora - Hansgrohe, seeking to enhance the mood after the abandonment of its leader. In the general classification there were no changes and Tadej Pogacar remains in the yellow jersey.
