The first big mountain day saw a Frenchman live the dream. Nans Peters was in the big break of the day then dropped Ilnur Zakarin before the Peyresourde to solo to the finish in Loudenvielle. Adam Yates held onto the yellow jersey by the skin of his teeth.
Stage 7 was a day of cross-winds and losses for those who missed the important echelons. One man who made sure he was to the fore was Wout Van Aert and then the man on form made sure of the sprint win. Adam Yates finished 9th on the stage and held the overall lead.
The sixth stage of the Tour de France saw Alexey Lutsenko solo to the finish on Mont Aigoual. The Kazakh champion was part of the early break and he turned out to be the strongest rider on the stiff final climb of the Col de la Lusette. The favourites for the GC held back, except Julian Alaphilippe who made a last metre attack. Adam Yates remains overall leader.
