Tour de France: Roglič Wins 19th Stage, Now Third Overall

The Slovakian admitted to being in pain all over his body after his eighth-place finish, but he is determined to get to Paris this weekend.

The Irishman came into this year's Tour hoping to challenge for a podium spot, but lost time at key points in the race.

But he picked himself up from the side of the ride in the Pyrenees and finished 26 minutes behind stage victor Nairo Quintana of Movistar in 134th place. The top 10 standings remained the same.

Stage 19 starts in the pilgrimage town of Lourdes and takes the peloton over legendary climbs like the Col du Tourmalet and Col d'Aubisque.

"Quite often I take a step back and think, 'Shit, this is cool.' And it is cool - it's awesome", said Martin.

Team Sunweb's Dumoulin may be the world time trial champion, but Thomas will be confident of defending his advantage on Saturday's 31km race against the clock which will settle the general classification fight.

Eurosport is the home of the Tour de France.

"Obviously, it hurt me enormously and everybody close to me and the team", Demare said. "It'll be something to savour".

Saudi Arabia stops oil exports after Yemen rebels strike two tankers
Nearly 10 years ago, the oil market was shocked by the news that a Saudi oil tanker , Sirius Star, was hijacked by Somali pirates. Global oil prices rose slightly after the incident, although industry experts said the increase was unlikely to last.

But the Groupama-FDJ man was left to celebrate his first stage win of this year's race and second of his Tour career. "My throat, nose and eyes were burning afterwards, but I think quite a lot of riders were in a similar situation, so we were all grateful for the temporary neutralisation just to have a couple of kilometres to clear our eyes, nose and throat out and then the race continued again".

"It might look like I'm attacking to entertain but it's just my racing instinct". "I wasn't sure I could make it this far, and I just enjoyed crossing the finish line today".

"I didn't know that it was a headwind sprint. Hopefully we'll have strength in numbers and he'll be able to just follow as well", Thomas said. "It's not his fault, but it's just the way it is. It went exactly as we'd planned". "I only saw him coming back on to the road".

"I crashed in a turn - in the corner I made a mistake", Sagan told reporters at the finish.

Martin was asked whether he was happy with his Tour.

Otherwise, it was a very calm stage except for a minor crash involving Stage 17 victor Nairo Quintana and British rider Adam Yates midway through the route.

"We played it well. From day one we've been laughing and joking on the bus".
