Pogacar: We will see on Hautacam if Vingegaard has any weaknesses

Now what? Tadej Pogačar threw everything he had left at Jonas Vingegaard on stage 17 of the Tour de France, the race’s second in the Pyrenees, but four bonus seconds was a scant return for him and his depleted team’s efforts on the road to Peyragudes.

True, Pogačar outsprinted Vingegaard at the summit to claim his third stage win of his Tour, but even though he celebrated with his usual vigor on crossing the line, it was hard to shake off the feeling that this amounted to a consolation prize. His path to a third successive overall victory remains as forbidding now as it did before the day began. He remains second overall, 2:18 behind Vingegaard.
