Tour de France 2024 | General classification: No one is under a minute behind Pogacar

Contrasting day for Tadej Pogacar (UAE-Emirates). The yellow jersey increased his lead over his runner-up who is still called Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) and who went from 33 seconds to 1’06” after the 11th stage and his arrival at Lioran. Problem, Jonas Vingegaard (Visma | Lease a Bike) who he hoped to put out of the game came back and even beat him in the sprint to pick up… a small second on the day (+1’14” overall).

Overall, the Dane is now one minute and 14 seconds behind his rival. Considering his truncated preparation and listening to him, we imagine that he would have signed up or almost to be at this level halfway through the Tour de France. Behind him, Primoz Roglic (Red Bull-BORA-Hansgrohe) fell and he could have lost almost a minute to find himself 2’45” behind overall. Fortunately for him, the three-kilometre rule applied and he was brought back into the time of Remco Evenepoel, with whom he was at that time.

Behind, the big loser of the day is Juan Ayuso who fell from 5th to 9th place overall, leaving Joao Almeida, Tadej Pogacar’s other teammate, to climb into the Top 5. Note that Giulio Ciccone (Lidl-Trek) enters the Top 10 and that the first Frenchman, Guillaume Martin, is still 23rd overall, 20’36” behind the yellow jersey.
