- Ineos Grenadiers win second stage in as many days
- Defending champion edges further ahead of closest rival
Every second counts in the 2023 Tour de France, as the defending champion, Jonas Vingegaard, and his closest rival, Tadej Pogacar, again demonstrated as they fought their way through the Alps, scrapping over bonus seconds on stage 14, from Annemasse to Morzine.
They both huffed, puffed and sweated buckets, but there was ultimately little change to the gap between them, although it was a better day for Vingegaard, leader of the Jumbo-Visma team, who reined in his UAE Team Emirates rival’s attack near the top of the steep Col de Joux Plane to take the available bonus himself.
