With the riders of the 2023 Tour de France now taking a well-earned rest day, let’s take the opportunity to look back at the three tricky stages that led us here. Three hot days in the mountains, three days of massive crowds, three stages in which the two GC favourites – Jonas Vingegaard and Tadej Pogačar – tested each other repeatedly but weren’t able to make any real headway.

Without further ado, here’s all the action courtesy of some wonderful photos from Kristof Ramon, and Ashley & Jered Gruber.
