It was a day of radically mixed contrasts for Colombia on Friday's stage 13 of the Tour de France as Dani Martínez (EF Pro Cycling) claimed the country's first stage win even as the GC hopes compatriot Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) took an important blow.

The winner of the Critérium du Dauphiné, Martínez had been experiencing a rollercoaster Tour de France himself after crashing twice in the first stage, losing time at Orcières-Merlette then bidding adios to the overall classification in the echelons of stage 7 – exactly one week before his victory at Le Puy Mary.
