After dictating the terms of engagement at Orcières-Merlette on Tuesday, Jumbo-Visma were content to cede the prime real estate on the front of the yellow jersey group to Ineos Grenadiers on stage 6 of the Tour de France, where Primož Roglič and Tom Dumoulin finished safely alongside their direct rivals atop Mont Aigoual.

With a finale that featured the tough category 1 ascent of the Col de la Lusette ahead of a 13km drag onwards to the finish line, the Tour’s trek through the Cévennes was expected to provoke some frissons among the general classification contenders.
