Tom Dumoulin won the 13th stage of the Tour de France, which resumed under heightened security following the Nice terror attack.
The 25-year-old completed the 37.5km individual time trial from Bourg-Saint-Andeol to Vallon Pont-d’Arc in a winning time of 50 minutes and 15 seconds. Defending Champion Chris Froome showed no ill effects from the chaotic finish to stage 12 on Mont Ventoux as he came home second, 63 seconds adrift.
Portugal’s Nelson Oliveira upset the odds to complete the podium while Jerome Coppel and Rohan Dennis finished fourth and fifth respectively.
This result sees Chris Froome strengthen his grip on the yellow jersey. The Team Sky rider now leads Bauke Mollema by one minute and 47 seconds, with Adam Yates, who finished almost two minutes behind Froome, in third.
Another strong day in the saddle for
