Stage 17 Bagnères-de-Luchon – Col du Portet | Tour de France 2018

Jul 25, 08:20 PM

The Tour de France continued in the Pyrenees with a short and explosive 65-kilometre stage finishing on the very difficult climb of the Col du Portet.

At the finish, Geraint Thomas extended his lead in the yellow jersey as Chris Froome faltered. We ask where this leaves Team Sky now.

And Nairo Quintana won the stage – but was that nothing more than a consolation for Movistar?

We discuss all the talking points from the stage and hear from Froome, Thomas, Dave Brailsford and Dan Martin, who rode so strongly in pursuit of Quintana.
