Steven Kruijswijk abandoned the Tour de France after 30 kilometres of stage 17 to Saint-Lary-Soulan, leaving Jumbo-Visma with just four riders as they try to defend Jonas Vingegaard’s third place overall.

Kruijswijk climbed off after a fast start on the flat roads towards the Pyrenees, with Jumbo-Visma soon announcing that he started to feel ill during the rest day and had not recovered.
