Sunday’s return to the high mountains for the Tour de France looks set to bring back pleasant memories of recent success for Primož Roglič, the race leader confirmed after a fast and furious stage 14 into Lyon, and they may well help keep his motivation high in what looks likely to be another major GC battle on the climbs.

Well-protected at the head of the pack by teammate Tony Martin, who set down a ferocious pace on Lyon’s long, narrow boulevards prior to the last two fourth category climbs, and then by double stage winner Wout Van Aert when the road began to steepen, Roglič came through Saturday’s fraught, undulating urban finale unscathed and in yellow for a sixth successive stage.
