Egan Bernal sits third overall following the stage 13 summit finish as the general classification received a shake up at the Tour de France.

The Colombian fought hard to limit his losses in the final kilometres of the Pas de Peyrol, crossing the line 38 seconds behind chief rivals Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) and Tadej Pogacar (UAE-Team Emirates).

The result sees Bernal drop one place to third overall, now 59 seconds back on the yellow jersey of Roglic.

A relentless day of climbing saw a battle to make the breakaway, with Pavel Sivakov riding well to get into the early move. The 17-man break produced the eventual stage winner in Daniel Martinez (EF Pro Cycling).

The INEOS Grenadiers took it up on the front on the penultimate climb, the Col de Neronne, with Dylan van Baarle and Michal Kwiatkowski setting the pace before an acceleration from Richard Carapaz.
