Rated ascents

  • Km 135.7: Côte la Cité Médiévale de Lauzerte, 1 km @ 6.2%. Cat. 4
  • Km 152.6: Côte de Saint-Daunès, 1.6 km @ 6.3%. Cat. 4

The race: GC 11th place Enric Mas (Movistar) tested positive for Covid-19 and did not start. That left a starting peloton of 139 riders who began the stage at 1:09 PM.

Here's the race organizer's stage 19 summary:

Christophe Laporte avoided the host country having no stage wins like in the 1926 and 1999 Tour de France as he powered to victory almost 2km before the finishing line of stage 19 in Cahors. He surprised pure sprinters Jasper Philipsen and Alberto Dainese who came second and third. He got the green light from Wout van Aert to go and get the fifth stage victory in this Tour de France, his personal first one at the age of 29 after he transferred from Cofidis to Jumbo-Visma, the Dutch team that keeps dominating the overall classification with Jonas Vingegaard two days before reaching Paris.

139 riders took the start of stage 19 in Castelnau-Magnoac, the village of rugby player Antoine Dupont, at 13:09. Mikkel Honoré (Quick Step), Quinn Simmons (Trek-Segafredo) and Taco van der Hoorn (Intermarché-Wanty Gobert) rode away at km 4, quickly joined by Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorious) and Nils Politt (Bora-Hansgrohe).

They got a maximum advantage of 1’30’’ as sprinters’ teams like Lotto-Soudal, Alpecin-Deceuninck, BikeExchange-Jayco and DSM kept them on a leash, riding fast with a three-quarter tailwind.

Simmons won the intermediate sprint at Auch (km 38.4) where a tribute was paid to the late Nicolas Portal who was the head sport director of Team Sky. The breakaway group was almost reeled in at Fleurance, km 53. Politt sat up but Honoré relaunched the move and Simmons, Mohoric and Van der Hoorn went with him.

Cyril Barthe (B&B Hotels-KTM) escaped from the peloton but failed to bridge the gap by a mere five seconds. The Frenchman got brought back and the advantage of the quartet went up again: 1’ at km 80.

Philippe Gilbert led the bunch for most of the race for Lotto-Soudal, with other sprinters’ teams like BikeExchange-Hayco, Alpecin-Deceuninck and DSM also involved in the chase.

Simmons attacked up the hill to the medieval town of Lauzerte. Mohoric went with him to sprint for the cat. 4 KOM prize in a spectacular manner. Simmons continued solo with 48km remaining. He was brought back 13km further. Alexis Gougeard (B&B Hotels-KTM) counter-attacked and the next rider who tried to escape from the peloton after having had a bike change due to a mechanical was no less than… Tadej Pogacar! Wout van Aert reacted quickly. Gougeard was joined in the lead by Fred Wright (Bahrain Victorious) and Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) with 32km to go.

The trio rode into the last 20km with 30’’ lead over the peloton led mostly by TotalEnergies. Lotto-Soudal took over with Brent Van Moer. Stage favourites Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and Michael Matthews (BikeExchange-Jayco) pulled the peloton as they were racing for Christophe Laporte and Dylan Groenewegen respectively.

Wright sped up but 1.5km before the end, Laporte was the first rider to catch the trio and he put the hammer down. He accelerated a second time 500 meters before the end. He continued his effort till the finishing line at the end of a slightly uphill road to take the first French stage victory of the 109th Tour de France while Pogacar sprinted to fifth place.

Stage 19 photos by Fotoreporter Sirotti:

Approaching the line, stage winner Christophe Laporte has time to sit up and enjoy his victory. Behind him in the white jersey you can see "never-say-die" Tadej Pogacar sprinting.

Stage winner Christophe Laporte delivered a surprise that I'm sure the pure sprinters didn't appreciate.

Jonas Vingegaard finishes the stage with Geraint Thomas right behind him.

Wout van Aert just has to finish this Tour to win the Points Classification. That should be his teammate Nathan Van Hooydonck on his right.

Franck Bonnamour was the last man across the line.

Simon Geschke gets to keep wearing the polka dots since the leader of the mountains classification is Vingegaard, who is in yellow. As the second-place rider in the category, the jersey lands on Geschke's shoulders.
