Find here all of our live #TOUR_DE_FRANCE

3:42 p.m. : Courage Caleb, it changes in 27 kilometers. Well, on the other hand, there is still Alpe d’Huez. #TDF2022

3:42 p.m. : A thought for the sprinters who are having a bad day (after an already terrible stage yesterday).

3:41 p.m. : Pierre, you have to remember Froome’s accident and the fact that it was obvious that he would never regain his form. It’s already extraordinary to be there …. thank you science (can be read sarcastically I admit)

3:41 p.m. : In the comments, insist on the performance of Chris Froome, who achieved a solid Tour de France a few years after his terrible fall on the Dauphiné.

3:34 p.m. : 🏔 Let’s go for the long climb to the Col de la Croix de Fer (HC).

🇬🇧 @PerezAnthony1 (20 pts) and 🇮🇹 @giuliocicco1 (15 pts) can come close to 🇩🇪 @simongeschke (43 pts) in the mountain ranking.

#TDF2022 ⚪️🔴

3:33 p.m. : The runners approach the foothills of the Col de la Croix de Fer, classified out of category (29 km endless!). The breakaways are nearly seven minutes ahead of a peloton where we will probably wait for the switchbacks of Alpe-d’Huez to explain ourselves.

3:29 p.m. : Incredible photo of the English runner Tom Pidcock during his descent from the Col du Galibier. Don’t do the same thing at home!

3:25 p.m. : Kom så Vingegaard!😍🇩🇰 live fra CW Obels plads i Aalborg! #TDF2022 #Aalborg #JumboVisma #storskærm

3:25 p.m. : And meanwhile, in the stronghold of Jonas Vingegaard, we watch the Tour on a giant screen. It’s clearly the Tour des Danois with already two stage victories, the big start and now the yellow jersey.

3:19 p.m. : @Dyl01 Chris Froome currently sits 44th overall, 27 minutes behind Jonas Vingegaard. Which is frankly not bad, compared to last year when he wandered like a ghost for three weeks ending up in the depths of the rankings.

3:19 p.m. : Where is Chris Froome in the general classification of the Tour de France?

3:16 p.m. : New case of Covid in the UAE Emirates clan with manager Joxean Fernández Matxín, who leaves the Tour de France after a positive test following an internal check. #TDF2022

3:17 p.m. : @Eunice Imagine that the virus continues to decimate the UAE formation of Tadej Pogacar, which therefore has, at the last score, two runners forced to give up, a runner who runs while being positive (Rafal Majka) and now a member of the positive staff.

3:16 p.m. : Hello. No covid cases or abandonments before the 12th stage?

3:15 p.m. : The first part of the Tour has already given us some memorable images, especially for the Grand Départ in Denmark. Here are some pictures!





3:14 p.m. : Great to see Chris Froome off the front — his last breakaway/at the front moment at Le Tour was back in 2018 when he was 3rd in Paris #TDF2022

3:14 p.m. : The followers of the Grande Boucle dug into their archives: the last time we saw Chris Froome at the front was in 2018. So five years ago!

3:12 p.m. Cymru corner

3:16 p.m. : Did you know the bend of the Dutch, and that of the Norwegians on the bends of L’Alpe d’Huez? Here is the bend of the Welsh, supporters of Geraint Thomas, native son and winner of the 2018 Tour.

3:04 p.m. : #TDF2022 Well, we fall asleep there! French victory we will still wait as it is! We can’t say that we lit the firecrackers there! 😟

3:04 p.m. : We hope you got your neck wet at the start of the stage, after yesterday’s fireworks. So far it’s pretty quiet…

3:16 p.m. : Nine riders are in the lead, including Chris Froome, Tom Pidcock (best ranked overall, 11 minutes) and Anthony Pérez. They are almost 4 minutes ahead of the peloton. Note that it is 32°C in the valley between the Galibier and Croix de Fer passes.

2:51 p.m. : There are still fans…

2:51 p.m. : Note that some irreducible fans of Lance Armstrong still and always resist the invader… To stay in the metaphor spun on Asterix, know that the American runner had drunk a little too much magic potion.

2:50 p.m. : We often talk about the bend of the Dutch but that of the Norwegians (the n’5) is not bad either in terms of atmosphere…

2:50 p.m. : Are you nosediving a bit at the start of this stage? Count on the Norwegians to liven up the finale!

2:48 p.m. : Note the presence of Chris Froome among the escapees of the day, a rarity since his big fall in 2019. The quadruple winner of the Tour has not had the same level for a few years.

2:38 p.m. : @Chip13 and @feliscatus Thing promised, thing due (we just waited for the end of the presidential interview). And know that Raphaël has light socks when it comes to summing up an hour of presidential speech in a few lines.


2:38 p.m. : No, but what is this story, we are told Raphaël Godet in a polka dot jersey, and not even a supporting photo?!

2:38 p.m. : We had the photo of Pierre with the colors of Lens, we would like to see Raphaël in a polka dot jersey…🙏

2:35 p.m. : Regrouping at the head of the race, Anthony Pérez is joined by Giulio Ciccone, Louis Meintjes and Neilson Powless. They are 1’20 ahead of several chasing groups, including Chris Froome, the peloton is less than two minutes away.

The gruppetto, the peloton for those allergic to the mountains, is already almost 5 minutes away.

2:48 p.m. : Anthony Pérez crosses the Col du Galibier alone in the lead, 2,600 m above sea level, sorry. The tricolor rider from the Cofidis team is a regular in the breakaways. He had spent a large part of the stage ending in Calais in the lead all afternoon.


2:26 p.m. : Note that earlier, at the start of the stage, two riders, including the former yellow jersey Yves Lampaert fell because of a dog who escaped the vigilance of a spectator on the side of the road. Not serious, fortunately.

Unless I am mistaken, this is the first fall of this kind on the Grande Boucle this year.


2:25 p.m. : You will notice that the runners interviewed before the start wear a refrigerated jacket to cool down the body temperature before the start. In hot weather, runners can also drink up to 10 liters of water during a stage.

2:24 p.m. : @Nimois Absolutely, but let’s hope that Romain Bardet will win the yellow jersey on the pedal (well, that’s in my wildest dreams, the 40 km time trial before the finish should bring me back to my senses) .

2:24 p.m. : If the Dane tests positive for Covid-19, does Romain Bardet become a yellow jersey?

2:24 p.m. : El Diablo! Faithful to the position in the Granon 😈blank

2:24 p.m. : @Pommecannelle46 Don’t worry about Didi Seifert (that’s his nickname), the indestructible devil of the Tour was yesterday at the side of the road in the Col du Granon.

2:24 p.m. : And the legendary El Diablo, a German supporter what becomes of him?

2:23 p.m. : Alpe d’huez awaits the arrival of the 12th stage of @LeTour in the bend of the Dutch. To follow live on @franceinfo @francebleu @franceinter @radiofrance #TDF2022

2:23 p.m. : This is not a video of the atmosphere that reigns in the editorial staff (depopulated) on this 14-July, but the now famous turn of the Dutch.

2:15 p.m. : The race is still not settled as we approach the steepest slopes of the Galibier. Anthony Pérez started alone in front, pursued by seven riders, while the peloton led by ambitious like Thibaut Pinot, Tom Pidcock and Primoz Roglic is only 1’23 behind. Nothing is decided yet, while the most weakened elements have already been released. For them, the day is going to be very, very long.

1:43 p.m. : Difficult to tell you if the good breakaway is gone. A group of seven riders are at the forefront, including Anthony Perez among them, with a 1’30 lead over the peloton. But several riders who missed the right car, including Thibaut Pinot, are trying to catch up on the runaways. As well as teammates from the Jumbo, the yellow jersey team.

1:14 p.m. : @Revenge? Yesterday, the manager of the UAE team Mauro Gianetti assured the specialized site Wielerflits that it was not a failure of his colt, but the show of force of the Jumbo-Visma. We also know that Tadej Pogacar does not support the heat well, the mercury expected this afternoon will not help him.

On the Romain Bardet side, we hope that his knee, which was painful last weekend, leaves him in peace. As for Jonas Vingegaard, everything is fine on board according to his team.

1:13 p.m. : Hello Pierre Godon, do we know how Pogacar is physically before this stage. As well as Vingegaard and Bardet? Good live!

1:10 p.m. : News from turn 7️⃣ #TDF2022

1:09 p.m. : The @tdfbeefeaters spreading the love

1:09 p.m. : It’s 11.25pm ​​and I think that’s some sort of bin lorry.🤷‍♂️

1:09 p.m. : They too are part of the show: the supporters are already boiling hot since last night, and among them, the legendary English Beefeaters Bend.

1:07 p.m. : Victory of Pogacar who will have thought to refuel today?!
