- Memorable stage five win for German over hilly terrain
- Riders abandoning sweltering race now steadily growing
Ricarda Bauernfeind of the Canyon-SRAM team took a solo win on stage five of the Tour de France Femmes, from Onet-Le-Château to Albi.
On another demanding day, of 30 degree heat and hardly any flat road, a much reduced peloton arrived on the banks of the Tarn, after a long pursuit of lone attacker Bauernfeind.
