As if the Tour does not have enough surprises, today the stage race was cut short due to weather for the safety of the riders. Egan Bernal was declared the winner of the stage due to his time at the top of the mountain before the race was halted. Alaphilippe lost the yellow jersey he wore for 14 days, a disappointment for the French who were hoping a countryman would win for the first time in 34 years. There is one more mountain stage and then the ride into Paris.
