Defending Champions Bernal out of Tour de France

Bernal began the Tour still suffering with a back injury that forced him to withdraw from the Criterium du Dauphine last month, but had played down the problem until his collapse.

Stage victor Team UAE Emirates rider Slovenia's Tadej Pogacar celebrates on the podium after winning the 15th stage of the 107th edition of the Tour de France cycling race, 175 km between Lyon and Grand Colombier, on September 13, 2020.

Roglic leads Pogacar by 40 seconds with six stages remaining, with Rigoberto Uran in third at 1min 34sec, and Miguel Angel Lopez and Adam Yates rounding out the top five.

Defending champion Egan Bernal has withdrawn from the Tour de France ahead of stage 17. The last six kilometers of the climb are particularly hard, with very steep sections and sharp turns.

The Pixel 4a 5G will likely be powered by the same Snapdragon 765G chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Despite revealing a few items ahead of time, Google always tries to unveil unexpected products in these events as well.

"There will be gaps and a mix-up on the GC [general classification]", Pogacar continued.

The victory was just reward for the 24-year-old who was pipped to the line on the Puy Mary mountain last week. A big group formed the escape of the day and included Julian Alaphilippe, Andrey Amador, Sebastian Reichenbach, Lennard Kämna, Richard Carapaz and Quentin Pacher, among others. When I saw Carapaz slowing down I said to myself it was the moment to go.

"It's big for me and a relief for the team". I can nearly not imagine it. "The step I made this year is huge and I'm so pleased to win today".

French health authorities and organisers Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) had said that if two members of a team, riders or staff, tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the whole outfit would be excluded from the race. The latest screening around the race's second rest day was the fourth since the beginning of the Tour, and the last one before the peloton reaches the Champs Élysées on Sunday.
