The Colombian Superman Lopez he won the very tough climb of the Coz de la Laze to take the queen stage of the 2020 Tour de France. The cyclist from Astana, who had not managed to win a stage so far, climbs to third position in a Tour that has Roglic on track, which was second to 11 seconds and hit the table in the general classification.
The last meters brought a nice battle between the Slovenians Roglic and Tadej Pogacar for the first position and the yellow jersey, and the first took it, which increases the distance in the lead. The stage took place without the current champion, Egan Bernal. The 23-year-old cyclist, leader of the Ineos, withdrew before the start of the stage due to physical problems in mutual agreement with his team.
The one who did not have his best day was Nairo Quintana, which is having a 2020 Tour de France to forget. The Colombian suffered a lot again and fell out of the leading group very early, this time on the first ramps of Col de la Madeleine, the first hard climb of the day.
The stage was marked by a getaway, with renowned people, such as Julian Alaphilippe (Deceunick-Quick Step), Gorka Izagirre (Astana) and a Richard Carapaz (Ineos) who was the best, holding out alone up to 3 kilometers from the finish line, when he was hunted by the best.
The next gap, the next option to move this Tour de France, is this Thursday. Another mountain stage, with a different profile, departing from Méribel and arriving at La Roche-sur-Foron after 174 kilometers and five scoring mountain passes, with a downhill finish.
