Victor Campenaerts attacks from the gun and 13 riders go with him: Matej Mohoric, Alexey Lutsenko, Michael Woods, Mathieu Burgaudeau, David de la Cruz, Matteo Jorgenson, Clément Berthet, Gorka Izagirre, Guillaume Boivin, Jonas Abrahamsen, Jonas Gregaard, Pierre Latour and KOM leader Neilson Powless are on board.
The peloton keeps chasing for 20 kilometres before the gap goes out to over 16 minutes. Berthet is the highest ranked attacker – 26.56 minutes down on the maillot jaune.
Neilson Powless pockets the maximum amount of KOM points in the intermediate climbs.
Jorgenson heads out alone with almost 50 kilometres remaining. Powless, Burgaudeau, Mohoric and De la Cruz go after him on the Col de la Nugère, a non-classified climb of 9.2 kilometres at 2.8%. De la Cruz loses contact on descent after a mechanical problem.
The American enters the Puy de Dôme 1 minute ahead of the first three chasers. He extdends his lead a little before he enters the insanely steep final 4 kilometres.
Mohoric leaves his companions behind, while Woods comes closing in. On the lower slopes, the GC group is down to Pogacar, Vingegaard, Kuss, Simon Yates, Pidcock and Rodriguez.
Woods overhauls Jorgenson 450 metres before the finish and solos to victory. Latour and Mohoric also catch the brave attacker in the dying metres and the American finishes in fourth.
Meanwhile Pogacar accelerates with 1.5 kilometres left to climb. Vingegaard struggles at 10 metres before the Slovene goes again to widen the gap. But the Dane limits his losses to 8 seconds. Which is enough to retain the yellow jersey with a margin of 17 seconds.
