The steepest part of the climb of Puy Mary is just two kilometres long, but it proved more than sufficient for 2020 Tour de France leader Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) to make his most impressive move yet towards winning the race outright.

As soon as Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) accelerated away on the ascent, just as the road’s gradient moved into double figures, Roglič was on his wheel, while their rivals were left scattered all over the mountainside behind them.
