Vingegaard looks to Alpe d’Huez as he prepares to take on Pogacar in Tour de France mountains

Jonas Vingegaard and his Jumbo-Visma teammates opted to keep a low-profile on the rest day in the French Alps but the Dane will start the Alpine mountain stages just 39 seconds down on Tadej Pogačar and is widely considered his biggest – if not only – rival in this year’s Tour de France.

The 25-year-old Dane lost some seconds in the opening time trial and on the cobbled stage, while Pogačar has accrued 18 others thanks to time bonuses. However, their abilities appear to be closely matched.
