12km to go: Calmejane and Skujins take on the stiff climb to the intermediate sprint and look over their shoulders after feeling the collective breath of their peloton on their necks. The gap is 10 seconds, but nobody in the bunch seems interested in competing for the bonus seconds.
15km to go: Calmejane (Direct Energie) and Skujins (Trek Segafredo) pedal on, while Chris Froome and a couple of his lieutenants make their way to the front of the bunch just 30 seconds behind them. There are riders from BMC and Movistar at the front of the peloton, with Greg van Averamaet’s yellow jersey visible towards the front.
