    Another brilliant stage in what is turning out to be a brilliant Tour.

    Top 6:

    Alaphilippe
    Thomas 1' 35"
    Kruijswijk 1' 47"
    Pinot 1' 50"
    Bernal 2' 02"
    Buchmann 2' 14"

    Still any of those 6.

    Great win for Simon Yates but what has gone wrong for his brother Adam?

    I spent three weeks picking grapes in Gard 40 years ago. Nimes is special with amazing historic buildings, can't wait to see again.

    Yeah beautiful area. Stunning Bad news as Jakob Fuglsang had to abandon the tour today after a crash. All the best and speedy recovery!

    Massive race ahead with the legendary Col du Galibier 2642m


    Stage 18/ July 25Embrun to Valloire • 17:10 HKT • 208.0 km • 5212m total climbing • 2643m max elevations • 12.2% max grade • 4 Climbs • 1 Sprint

    << HK Live TV: Eurosport 5:10pm >>


    The Galibier is a gruelling ascent of 23 kilometres. The first 14 kilometres are relatively straightforward, with the Col du Lautaret gradients hovering between 4 and 5%. The rest of the climb is 7 to 8% with the last kilometre kicking up a little to 9%. Overall, the average gradient on the Galibier is 5.1%. After its crest – where the first three riders pocket time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds – the route flies down an 18-kilometre descent to the line in Valloire.

    The climbs over the next three days are very dramatic. Any of the riders could break and any of them could make big time. It is like the whole Tour condensed into three days.

    Stage 18 was a brute of a stage but not as decisive as people thought it would be. Just Bernal moving up. Win for Quintana who moves up to 7th overall. Alaphilippe held on though, just two more mountain stages for him to keep going.

    Top 6 now (time difference from 3 days ago)

    Alaphilippe
    Bernal 1' 30" (2' 02")
    Thomas 1' 35" - same
    Kruijswijk 1' 47" - same
    Pinot 1' 50" - same
    Buchman 2' 14" - same
