Jonas Vingegaard continued to show his impressive form on the final mountain day of an enthralling edition of the Tour de France. Stage 18 finished with the legendary Hautacam climb where Jonas Vingegaard took a big leap towards the overall victory by putting more than a minute into Tadej Pogačar. The Dane did not break his compatriot Bjarne Riis' record time (34:41) but still did the fastest climbing time since Lance Armstrong in 2000.
Tadej Pogačar again did a great climbing performance in the first mountain stage that finished on La Super Planche des Belles Filles, breaking Geraint Thomas' 2019 record by 19 seconds. However the Slovenian faced stiff competition from Jonas Vingegaard, who seems is capable of challenging the mighty Pogačar this year.
