Michael Matthews (BikeExchange-Jayco) took one of the finest victories of his career with an impressive solo effort into Mende on stage 14 of the Tour de France.

Matthews was part of a large breakaway that went clear after around 40k to go and the Australian then attacked that group with just over 50k to go. He was joined by several riders but a late attack on the Montée Jalabert was enough to deliver him to victory.

Tour de France stage 13 results

Mads Pedersen’s determined ride on an undulating stage 13 of the Tour de France on Friday was a display of the same strength that earned him the world championship title in 2019.

Pedersen unleashed his sprint with approximately 250 meters to go, easily beating British rider Fred Wright (Bahrain-Victorious) and the Canadian Hugo Houle (Israel-Premier Tech) to the line in Saint-Étienne.

Tour de France stage 12 results

Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) attacked from the breakaway to take an historic victory on Alpe d’Huez at the Tour de France.

The British rider attacked his four breakaway companions with just over 10 kilometers to go and never looked back. Louis Meintjes (Intermarche-Wanty-Gobert) finished second at 48 seconds behind Pidcock with Chris Froome (Israel-Premier Tech) taking third, just over two minutes adrift.

Having spent the early days of this year’s Tour de France sporting the King of the Mountains jersey, Magnus Cort (EF Education-EasyPost) raced back into the headlines on stage 10 when he took a narrow victory ahead of Nick Schultz (BikeExchange-Jayco).

Spain’s Luis Leon Sánchez (Bahrain Victorious) and American rider Matteo Jorgenson (Movistar Team) were third and fourth. Quinn Simmons (Trek-Segafredo) was 11th.

Bob Jungels (AG2R-Citroën) won stage 9 of the Tour de France after leaving his breakaway companions on the Col de la Croix, setting off on a 65km solo attack.

He held off a late charge from Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) to win his first stage at the Tour and marked a triumphant return to form following his difficulties with arterial endofibrosis, a rare condition that reduces blood flow to the legs, over the last two years.

Stage 9 results and report.

Tour de France stage 8 results

Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) kicked past Michael Matthews (BikeExchange-Jayco) and Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) for an imperious Tour de France victory on the Cote du Stade Olympique.

Matthews lunged for second after opening up the final sprint on the grinding uphill finish, while yellow jersey Pogačar came across third on stage 8 of the race.

Stage 8 results and report.

Tour de France stage 7 results

Clawing back his rival right before the line, Tadej Pogačar (UAE Emirates) nipped past Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) for victory on the Super Planches des Belles Filles summit of the Tour de France.

Vingegaard had looked poised for victory after a lighting attack close to the line, overhauling breakaway rider Lennard Kämna (Bora-Hansgrohe) with 100 meters to go and initially gapping Pogačar.

Stage 7 results and report.

Tour de France stage 6 results

Tadej Pogačar followed up his strong showing on the cobbles with a similarly impressive blitz through the Ardennes on Thursday, nabbing the seventh Tour de France stage win of his career.

The UAE Team Emirates rider answered an early jump by Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) inside the final 400 metres of a hilly finale, blasting clear of the others in a select front group and hitting the line first.

Stage 6 results and report.

Tour de France stage 5 results

Simon Clarke (Israel PremierTech) won a breathtaking final out of a group of four that survived from the day’s early break.

American talent Neilson Powless spent the day in the escape and made an early attack for stage honors only to run out of steam and finish fourth. The EF Education-EasyPost ace is more than consoled by vaulting way up to second overall behind Wout van Aert.

Tour de France key stories

Tour de France contenders

Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) heads to the Tour de France as the number one favorite having won the race for the last two years. The Slovenian had the entire UAE Team Emirates squad at his disposal as he looks to secure a third straight title in the race.

Jonas Vingegaard and Primož Roglič will lead the line for Jumbo-Visma. Both riders have finished second to Pogačar in recent years and will be looking to make it onto the top step of the podium for the first time in their careers.

Daniel Martinez, Geraint Thomas and Adam Yates will spearhead a strong-looking Ineos Grenadiers with the British team unable to count on the 2019 winner Egan Bernal. However, Richard Carapaz, third in the Tour de France in 2021, is skipping the race this year.

Aleksandr Vlasov — winner of the Tour de Romandie in April — will target the yellow jersey for Bora-Hansgrohe, while Ben O'Connor will be looking to improve on his fourth-place from 2021.

Tour de France route

The 2022 Tour de France is the biggest bike race in the world. The 2022 route is a race with “a bit of everything” according to course designer, Thierry Gouvenou. The 21-day, 3,300-kilometer route brings in nearly all aspects of racing, including big climbs, long time trials, and rough cobblestones.

Starting in Copenhagen, this year’s Tour de France will kick off with a 13-kilometer pan-flat time trial that will define the early part of the race. Some sprint opportunities follow before the next big challenge of the cobbles on stage 5.

The first big summit finish immediately follows the cobbles with a ride up the brutal Planche des Belles Filles and the week will close on stage 9 with the uphill finish on the Châtel les Portes du Soleil.

Week two will begin in the mountains with finishes on the Col du Granon Serre Chevalier and Alpe d’Huez coming on stages 11 and 12. The Galibier will be ridden in both stages with the riders tackling a different side each time.

Following a long wait, the sprinters will come to the fore at the end of the second week with a couple of chances for glory in Saint-Étienne and Carcassonne.

The crucial final week begins in the medium mountains before another tough double-header of summit finishes on the Peyragudes and the Hautacam. A sprint stage into Cahors will be a buffer before the decisive 40-kilometer flat individual time trial between Lacapelle-Merival and Rocamadour.

As is traditional, the race will conclude with a sprint stage into Paris.

Tour de France sprinters

Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl has decided to leave last year's green jersey Mark Cavendish at home and will instead build its sprint train around Fabio Jakobsen.

Caleb Ewan will be hoping to make up for his poor showing at the Giro d'Italia with a stage win or two, while Dylan Groenewegen, Mads Pedersen, Alexander Kristoff  and Jasper Philipsen will all feature.
