With the Tour de France now two-thirds over and the peloton enjoying a final rest day ahead of three Pyrenean stages, a time trial, and two more sprints, it's a good time to look back at the previous two weeks of racing and take stock of how the 23 teams at the race are faring.

Over the last fortnight, Deceuninck-QuickStep have been dominant, taking five stage wins, holding the green jersey and a day in yellow, while UAE Team Emirates look to be sailing towards another overall victory thanks to Tadej Pogačar.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
