20 km before the port of Lers

The head of the race is barely twenty kilometers from the first major climb. Port de Lers at 1,517 m altitude is on top of an ascent of 11.4 km with a percentage of 7%.

Always the same in front

The breakaway consisting of 27 riders still leads the race 7’35 “ in front of the field where the yellow jersey is located.

With a distance of approx. 1.5 km from the peloton (2 min. Afterwards), the Spaniard looks out at the end of his rope in front of the broom wagon. A resignation could follow …

Marc Soler in trouble

In great difficulty since the start of the Tour, climbers from the UAE team, luxury teammate of Tadej Pogacar, are stuck at the back of the field. The Spaniard is seized by vomiting and gets help from the ambulance.

Marc Soler est dans la file des voitures et semble en difficulté. L'équipier de Tadej Pogacar, précieux notamment sur l'étape du Col du Granon, a fait appel à la voiture médicale de la course il y a quelques kilomètres. #TDF2022

The magnificent view from the start of Carcassonne

Caleb Ewan stops

The Australian rider who had many falls on this Tour is standing still. He asks his car to come and adjust the height of his saddle. Caleb Ewan is leaving and will now seek to return to the field.

La situation de course est stabilisée. Caleb Ewan en profite pour s'arrêter et régler sa selle. L'échappée perd du terrain sur le peloton, 5'30 à présent. 10 kilomètres avant le sprint intermédiaire de Lavelanet. #TDF2022

Benoot and Laporte drive at the head of the field

It is still Jumbo-Visma that controls the hole with the breaker: 5’25 ”. There are still about 120 km left this afternoon.

Alexis Gougeard caught by the outbreak

The French rider was taken over by the green jersey group. We therefore find a breakaway composed of 27 men.

🇫🇷 Alexis Gougeard is caught by the chasing group and we now have the 💚 green jersey group almost 6' ahead of the 💛 Yellow Jersey group

Results on Col de l’Espinas

Simmons and Matthews resumed

The two riders who had arrived too late understood that they could not keep up with the leading edge of the race and had just been overtaken by the field.

Pursuers (green shirt group) : 37 “

Pursuers (Simmons, Matthews) : 6’22 “

Plato : 6’33 “

Update on the riders of the breaker (by team)

The temperature rises

The runners went below 31 ° and we now reach 36 ° C. The temperature can still rise and damage the organisms.

Gougeard and Col de l’Espinas

Gougeard is still 35 ” ahead of the climb to the Col de l’Espinas, 5.3 km long with an average climb of 5%.

Alexis Gougeard alone in the lead

The Frenchman (BBK) is now solely responsible for the race. He was left by Mathieu Burgaudeau, who followed the advice of his DS and is waiting for the breaker to return.

C'est au tour de Burgaudeau de se relever à la demande de sa direction sportive. Alexis Gougeard est maintenant seul en tête avec 45 secondes d'avance sur le groupe maillot vert. #TDF2022

Genauzeau reassures Mathieu Burgaudeau

The Sports Director of TotalEnergies reassures his young runner. The two leading men set off in a hurry and are alone ahead of the race in an abundant stage. Especially with a 25 rider breakaway at the back, which is very comfortable.

Jorgenson was captured by the pursuers, who are therefore 25 runners.

Matthews and Simmons are always involved. The two men are driving along 2’40 ” behind the driver trio.

Three riders are now in the lead

Burgundy (TotalEnergies) is at the forefront Jørgenson (Movistar) and Gougeard (BBK). There are therefore two Frenchmen in this leading group.

Un trio s'est détaché à l'avant de la course : Jorgenson, Burgaudeau et Gougeard progressent avec 35 secondes d'avance sur le groupe de poursuivants dans lequel on retrouve également Van Hooydonck, équipier du maillot jaune, ou encore Philippe Gilbert. #TDF2022

Jumbo-Visma’s strategy question with 2 riders in front

The composition of the breaker

Several movements in front

The breakaway consisting of 27 riders now has a lead of almost 3 minutes across the field. Matthews is inserted and points 50 “from his head. Quinn Simmons points at him after 2 minutes.

Michael Matthews mixed

The BEX team rider is sandwiched between the breaker and the field. The race head is 1’23 from the field and Matthews 1 min from the outburst.

The leader of the race is forming

27 riders managed to create an outburst. The race leader takes the lead with 46 sec.

A group has initially managed to get a 40″ lead over the 💛 Yellow Jersey group

Quite a quiet start to the race

The riders fear the crosswind and the leaders are placed at the front in the middle. After a very hot rest day (40 °) it is cooler today, although the field must withstand a heat of 31 ° C.

Let’s go !

The runners are released. 178.5 km is on today’s program to reach Foix from Carcassonne. Christian Prudhomme waves his flag to give the start.

Two new dropouts

Känma and Wallscheid give up the Tour de France before the 16th stage.

The French want to show off

Christopher Froome is aiming for an outbreak

Characteristic shirts:

Yellow shirt : Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma)

Green sweater : Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma)

Today’s information:

Two withdrawals for the AG2R team: Aurélien Paret-Peintre and Mikaël Chérel are positive for Covi-19 and withdrawals for this 16th stage and the rest of the Tour.

The actual start is set at 12.40 and the estimated arrival at 17.11 with an average speed of 39 km / h.

Today’s weather forecast

The favorites will not necessarily compete for the victory on this stage, which will be a good start in the Pyrenees, but there will necessarily be a battle between Pogacar and Vingegaard in the ascent of the Péguère wall. The two big favorites may have an interest in letting go of an eruption before embarking on a first round on the dreadful slopes of the last climb of the day. But they will not drop a member of the Top 8. We will put a coin on Alberto Bettiol (EF Education EasyPost), impressive in the strongest percentages against Mende. What if Daniel Felipe Martinez (Ineos) redeemed himself after dropping in the standings? The Colombian must redeem himself after the first two disastrous weeks.
