Another day, another victory from a spectacular solo attack. Patrick Konrad (Bora-Hansgrohe) was inspired by the many riders who won stages of this Tour de France with distance attacks by setting off alone nearly 40 km from the finish, and holding until bout to claim the biggest victory of his career.

In what was a tactically intriguing fight in the breakaway, Konrad stole a step over other breakaway top climber David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) by jumping out of the group into a breakaway top trio earlier. The lead he was given was enough to prepare him for the stage victory, because despite sufficient power to knock down all the other riders except one, Gaudu’s attack on the penultimate climb failed. not enough to bring Konrad back.
