13th stage Summary

It was a long day, where history was made and also concerns returned to the peloton. The Deceunink - Quick Step team was the protagonist from start to finish. 154 riders took the start of stage 13 of the Tour de France 2021. At kilometer 27, Omer Goldstein (Israel Start-Up Nation), Sean Bennett (Qhubeka-NextHash) and Pierre Latour (TotalEnergies) formed the longest breakaway of the day. The French rider was the first to crest the Côte du Pic Saint-Loup.

With less than 70 kilometers to go the attacks in the peloton began to move the race, with 62 kilometers to go there was a massive crash, where the most affected were Roger Kluge (Lotto-Soudal), Lucas Hamilton and Simon Yates, the latter two from Team BikeExchange... All three ended up abandoning the competition. The breakaway would end up being caught with 55 kilometers to go.

Another breakaway broke away with 45 kilometers to go, when Quentin Pacher (B&B Hotels) went solo. The peloton, led by Deceunink - Quick Step, gave license to the Frenchman's breakaway, but then neutralized him with 19 kilometers to go.

Although the winds were starting to play a hand in wreaking havoc, the favorites held firm and in a fairly clean final sprint, Deceunink successfully led the British Mark Cavendish, who took the victory from Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin Fenix) and Ivan Garcia (Movistar) at the last gasp to get his fourth win in the current edition and equal Eddy Mercks' record as the most stage winner in the history of the Tour de France.
