Tour de France 2022 LIVE: Stage 14 update as Jonas Vingegaard leads Tadej Pogacar in standings

The threat of Covid-19 is great in the Tour de France peloton

Mads Pedersen clinched victory on stage 13 of the 2022 Tour de France with a master class on how to win from breakaway. Determined to get ahead of the peloton, the Trek-Segafredo rider reached his goal just after the first climb of the Cote de Brie. He was helped from there by teammate Quinn Simmons and a lack of threat from the peloton allowed him to attack with 10km to go. Hugo Houle and Fred Wright held on to the Dane, but he was too strong in the end and easily won the sprint to the finish line.

After three difficult days in the Alps, the GC candidates prepared for a transition day and rode in the peloton without too many problems. Caleb Ewan fell and injured his knee while Jumbo-Visma’s Jonas Vingegaard retained the yellow jersey ahead of UAE Team Emirates’ Tadej Pogacar.

Stage 14 offers a few opportunities for the riders willing to risk it. There are four Category 3 climbs that shouldn’t cause major changes to the overall standings, but the final climb to the finish has the potential to create splits, and those feeling strong can feel a bit within the final three-kilometer climb recover. With Pogacar chasing the yellow jersey, this could be the stage where he launches his next attack.

Follow all the action of Stage 14 of the Tour de France:

136 km to go: The peloton is over six minutes behind the breakaway, which hasn’t found its rhythm yet. There were a few moments after the sprint when some riders threatened to catch up, but they eased off and rejoined the pack.

There is now a long stretch of rolling uncategorized climbs that make up the majority of the stage. From here it should be drastically quieter until the last third of the stage.

141 kilometers to go: The breakaway goes through Yssingeaux where the intermediate sprint was placed. Michael Matthews comes around the outside and works his way to the front of the field, crossing the finish line first and collecting all 20 points in the sprint classification.

147 km to go: With 14th place in the GC ranking, Louis Meintjes is the best-placed of the 18 breakaways. He is also fighting for the KOM jersey and will battle with Simon Geschke for the next three categorized climbs.

The distance between the breakaway and the peloton is now 2’41”, so they are perfectly clear now.

Tour de France 2022: Stage 14

150 kilometers to go: Things should settle down now as a large group finally breaks off the top of the peloton.

Here is the sprint between Simon Geschke and Quinn Simmons at the top of the Cote de Chataignier.

1657971223

Tour de France 2022: Stage 14

152 km to go: The madness of the start appears to be over as the yellow jersey group, which includes Geraint Thomas and Tadej Pogacar, slows the pace at the top of the climb.

They release another group of about 18 riders and form the breakaway group.

It took 40 km for this. Crazy Scenes.

1657971075

Tour de France 2022: Stage 14

153 km to go: Franck Bonnamour is dominated by Quinn Simmons and Simon Geschke, who wears the polka dot jersey. They walk in front of him 50m before the top of the climb.

Simmons sprints towards the line and Geschke has to react. He goes to claim the KOM points, but Simmons sneaks across the line to claim the win.

1657970910

Tour de France 2022: Stage 14

154.5 km to go: Franck Bonnamour attacked the climb at the front of the race, gaining a 10-12 second gap. He’s got 1.5km of that climb to go and is doing fantastic to avoid shooting.
