The race is probably run. Probably. Jonas Vingegaard put another minute and four seconds onto his lead at the top of the GC standings, now at 3min26secs, leaving Tadej Pogacar for dead on Thursday in the final mountain climb in the Pyrenees. With Saturday’s time trial and the final procession into Paris on Sunday, this is PROBABLY the final chance for any sort of miraculous late development in the battle for the yellow jersey.

You can read about Thursday’s exploits right here. Today, the 188km track between Castelnau-Magnoac is a flat one, but not without some jeopardy. There are crosswinds “all day”, according to Geraint Thomas, who lies nicely in third. The terrain will be exposed and as the riders wind north from the mountains. Make no mistake, there will be nerves. This is not done yet. Probably.

Key events

132km to cover: We are a little on hold at the moment. The peloton narrowed the gap slightly to around 43 seconds. Not much else to report. Some beautiful sunflowers there.

Before departure today, Matej Mohoric (one of our breakaway riders), explained that he thinks it will be more of a headwind (“or a head-cross”) rather than a crosswind. That should make things easier for the peloton.

For what it’s worth, Van Aert is second in the field (and seventh overall) to add to his tally. Here are the results.

Result of the intermediate sprint in Auch (38.4km)
1. Quinn Simmons, 20 points
2. Nils Politt, 17 points
3. Taco van der Hoorn, 15 points
4. Mikkel Honoré, 13 points
5. Matej Mohoric, 11 points

At 1’30”
6. Jasper Philipsen, 10 points
7. Wout van Aert, 9 points
8. Chris Juul Jensen, 8 points
9. Guillaume van Keirsbulck, 7 points
10. Chris Hamilton, 6 points
11. Philippe Gilbert, 5 points
12. Mathieu Burgaudeau, 4 points
13. Nathan van Hooydonck, 3 points
14. Michael Storer, 2 points
15. Jonas Vingegaard, 1pt

Quinn Simmons wins the intermediate sprintalthough with Wout van Aert comfortably leading the standings for the green jersey, no one particularly cares today.

SUMMARY OF RACES

Huge frustration for the riders, especially the breakaways who will not be able to refuel in their team’s cars. These peloton riders will indeed receive their liquids and snacks. While the breakaway is already back, the peloton again sets off in pursuit. Let’s go.

The breakaway will resume the race with the same time difference: 1min20secs. It is unclear what the protests were for.

RACE SUSPENDED DUE TO PROTESTS

The marshals stop the race.

I don’t know what the curry houses look like in the Pyreneesbut Mads Pedersen, who won stage 13, will do his best to pull through today and make it to Paris.

#TDF2022 Mads Pedersen had a troubled night with stomach issues. He will race today and try to recover before Sunday.
Apologies to those who have just confirmed their fantastic teams.

The breakaway in the lead is now over a minute.

A surprise not to see more runners sprint teams in the breakaway, as it will likely be a sprint finish at the end of the stage. It would be nice to see Peter Sagan do something.

The riders have just left Castelnau-Magnoac. We join the race at about 10 km and there was a breakaway of five people. Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Victorious), Nils Politt (Bora-Hansgrohe), Quinn Simmons (Trek-Segafredo), Taco Van der Hoorn (Intermarche-Wanty-Gobert) and Mikkel Honore (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl) lead stage 19. They took about 50 seconds ahead of the peloton.

Preexample

The race is probably run. Most likely. Jonas Vingaard added a minute and four seconds to his lead at the top of the general classification, now at 3min26secs, leaving Tadej Pogacar for dead on Thursday during the last ascent of the Pyrenees. With the time trial on Saturday and the final motorcade in Paris on Sunday, this is PROBABLY the last chance for any sort of miraculous late development in the battle for the yellow jersey.
