Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) felt the moment was right with just eight kilometers left of climbing to launch an attack from the back of the small peloton. He was covered by Marc Soler (Movistar) and the French National Champion, Warren Barguil (Arkea Samsic). As the trio caught Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha-Alpecin) Yates seemed to invite the Russian to catch onto their wheels. Yates has two stage victories in this year's Tour already, he sure seemed to want just one more. Alas, it wasn't to be.
