Tour de France 2022 LIVE: Stage 13 route updates as Jonas Vingegaard leads Tadej Pogacar in the standings

Tom Pidcock versus Messi after Tour de France relegation

The peloton moves from the Alps to the mountain massifs on Stage 13 of the 2022 Tour de France, the day after Brit Tom Pidcock stormed to a stunning Stage 12 victory at Alpe d’Huez.

The 22-year-old celebrated his first stage win at the Tour, becoming the youngest rider and only the second Brit to win the iconic climb in the history of the race. The mountain bike Olympic champion made the first attack on the famous Alpe, some 10km from the summit, gradually riding away to follow in the footsteps of Ineos Grenadiers teammate Geraint Thomas, who won that stage in 2018.

Elsewhere, Tadej Pogacar tried to attack Jonas Vingegaard as they followed the breakaway up the road, but two failed attempts to get the Slovenian closer to the Dane in the GC standings and he needs his strategy on today’s 192.6 km-long route reconsider.

Stage 13 gives riders some relief after three days of climbing in the Alps with a relatively flat descent from Le Bourg D’Oisans to Saint Etienne. It’s one of those stages that can be won by a sprinter, puncher, climber or breakaway, so expect a huge scramble at the start as riders jostle for the best position. A clash for the overall standings is unlikely, but with Pogacar chasing the yellow jersey he could mistake those rolling hills for him rather than his Danish rival and put that theory to the test.

Follow all the action of Stage 13 of the 2022 Tour de France:
