Weather at the finish city of Lausanne at 1:30 PM, local time: 23C (74F), partly cloudy, with the wind from the north-northeast at 13 km/hr (8 mph). No rain is forecast.

The race: Two riders tested postive for Covid and did not start: Geoffrey Bouchard (Ag2r-Citroën) and Vegard Stake Laengen (UAE Team Emirates). That left 170 riders to ride today's stage. The official start was given at 1:19 PM.

Just 9 kilometers into the stage a large crash took down GC leader Tadej Pogacar, David Gaudu, Romain Bardet, Peter Sagan, Nairo Quintana and others. The peloton slowed to let the fallen riders rejoin the pack.

As a result of the crash, American rider Kevin Vermaercke (Team DSM) abandoned. Shortly thereafeter, Gianni Moscon (Astana) also quit the race. Ben O'Connor (Ag2r-Citroën) was off the back, clearly in pain. He was able to rejoin the peloton.

Here's the race organizer's stage eight report:

Wout van Aert claimed his second stage win in the 109th Tour de France as he overhauled Michael Matthews and Tadej Pogacar up the hill of the Olympic Stadium in Lausanne, Switzerland. It means the Belgian extended his lead seriously in the points competition while Slovenian gained four more seconds in time bonus but his third place enabled Magnus Cort to remain the King of the Mountains.

170 riders started stage 8 in the 109th Tour de France. 2 non-starters: Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R-Citroën) and Vegard Stake Laengen (UAE Team Emirates) who tested positive for Covid-19. After one more attempt by Magnus Cort (EF Education-Easypost), three riders took off at km 7: Mattia Cattaneo (Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl), Frederik Frison (Lotto-Soudal) and Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious).

A crash occurred at km 9. Kevin Vermarke (DSM), the first rider on the ground, was forced to pull out. Tadej Pogacar, Romain Bardet, David Gaudu, Geraint Thomas, Peter Sagan, Enric Mas and Nairo Quintana were among the riders affected by the fall that involved many participants. The slowdown of the peloton after that crash enabled the leading trio to extend its advantage to 3’30’’ at km 35. Gianni Moscon (Astana) was the second rider to abandon.

Fred Wright won the intermediate sprint at Montrond (km 46.9). Frison took one KOM point at Côte du Maréchet (km 75) while BikeExchange-Jayco, Jumbo-Visma and UAE Team Emirates were pacing the peloton. The deficit of the peloton was 1’30’’ at the Côte des Rousses (km 101.3) where Cattaneo passed in the first position and Frison in second.

The time difference went down to 1’ at the border between France and Switzerland 75km before the end but went up above two minutes later on as the bunch, mostly under the guidance of BikeExchange-Jayco, was in no hurry to catch the leading trio. It became a duo when Frison surrendered with 60km to go. Cattaneo and Wright had no more than one minute lead with 15km to go.

Wright dropped Cattaneo off in the streets of Lausanne with 8km to go, en route to the finishing hill of the Olympic Stadium. The Englishman was brought back 3.5km as Mikaël Chérel upped the tempo for AG2R-Citroën.

Patrick Konrad (Bora-Hansgrohe) took over from the Frenchman but the yellow jersey and the green jersey holders were right behind him, so was Matthews who launched the sprint.

Van Aert timed his sprint at perfection to impose himself once again. Now he’s got just as many stage wins in the Tour de France as Pogacar who missed out on the hat trick by very little.

 Stage 8 photos by Fotoreporter Sirotti:

Tadej Pogacar during the rider & team introduction ceremony.

Time to head for Switzerland.

The finish. Tadej Pogacar is right up there with the specialist speedsters and gets a few bonus seconds for his effort. Sitting in and finishing in the same group as Pogacar isn't good enough, a rider can lose still more time.

Wout van Aert is on a tear, his second stage win this Tour.

Tim Wellens finished 43rd, just ahead of Movistar rider Matteo Jorgenson

Nils Politt was 64th

Stefan Küng and Kevin Geniets were 66th & 67th.

Peter Sagan finishes. He was 130th.

Dylan Groenewegen was 145th.

A happy Wout van Aert just after winning the stage.

And Tadej Pogacar just after the stage finish.

It's going to be very hard to take this green jersey from van Aert. He leads the points classification 264 to 2nd-place Fabio Jakobsen's 149.

Magnus Cort remains the King of the Mountains.

Tadej Pogacar now leads Jonas Vingegaard by 39 seconds.
