Egan Bernal withdraws from Tour de France

Egan Bernal withdraws from Tour de France”

The peloton arrived more than 15 minutes later and Tadej Pogacar -second in the overall classification- tried first a long attack and then again the last kilometre but Primoz Roglic managed to stay at his wheel.

Defending champion Egan Bernal has withdrawn from the Tour de France ahead of stage 17, Team Ineos said on Wednesday.

It was his first Tour de France stage win, and Bora-Hansgrohe's first of this Tour.

The 24-year-old crossed the finish line on his own, taking his maiden victory in the French race, after earlier in the season he had also won in the Criterium du Dauphine.

"Overall, each of the 785 tests carried out returned negative results". The last six kilometers of the climb are particularly hard, with very steep sections and sharp turns. "We see everyone is exhausted". Carapaz, the Giro d'Italia champion, made Alaphilippe and Reichenbach crack with a couple of biting attacks but could not respond when Kaemna countered before the summit.

"When I saw that Carapaz was dropping the speed, I thought now it's the time to go and went all in to the end", Kaemna said.

This victory is also a very big relief for me and the team, I still can not believe it. "The step I've made this year is so huge and I'm blessed to win today".

Bernal, whose hopes of winning the race fell away when he cracked in Sunday's 15th stage, was dropped from the main bunch in the ascent to Saint-Nizier, suffering from back pains in Tuesday's 16th stage won by Lennard Kaemna.

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.

No rider has tested positive since the race started on August 29 in Nice.
