A show of strength by Jumbo-Visma on the Tour de France's first Pyrenean stage on Saturday produced decidedly mixed results after the Dutch squad eliminated some of Primož Roglič's top rivals from the running, but at the cost of a serious dent to Tom Dumoulin's GC chances.

On the plus side, Roglič remains second overall at three seconds behind maillot jaune Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), perfectly poised to take a crack at the GC leadership if he stays as strong as he clearly is right now.
