Watch highlights from stage 12 of the Tour de France below.
Mitchelton-Scott’s Simon Yates claimed his first Tour de France stage win in Bagneres-De-Bigorre today.
The 26-year-old British rider completed the 12th stage, which covered 209.5km, in 4:57:53.
Pello Bilbao (Astana Pro Team) and Gregor Mühlberger (Bora-Hansgrohe) settled for second and third respectively.
Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) finished another stage safely in yellow, with defending champion Geraint Thomas (Team Ineos) second and teammate Egan Bernal third.
“I think everyone knows it’s a big three days now, so people were probably just waiting to get to the finish [today],” said Thomas.
“I’ll do [a recon of Friday’s time-trial course] in the morning, but I’ve seen it three times already. I like it. It’s fast and it should be hard, but, yeah, a big day.”
