Highlights from Stage 14 of the Tour de France on Saturday.
Irishman Sam Bennett now holds the green jersey but will face competition from Peter Sagan on the 194-kilometer run across five small hills between Clermont-Ferrand and Lyon.
He remains 44 seconds ahead of his fellow Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, of UAE Team Emirates, in second place and 59 clear of defending champion Egan Bernal. I've dreamed about this but it's hard to say you're good enough until you do it.
"I had really good legs the whole day but you never know how good the other guys are". "Luckily we had everything under control".
Colombian riders started the day ranked third to sixth overall behind the Slovenian duo, but all of them lost time Sunday on the 175-kilometer (108-mile) stage into the Jura mountains, and for two the challenge seemed over.
The Slovenia versus Colombia contest atop the general classification will play out over two Category 1 summits before approaching an even tougher final climb that stretches for more than 17 kilometers (10 miles).
"When you see this young guy (Hirschi) doing these awesome things, of course I am also getting inspired", Andersen said of his teammate.
His Bora-Hansgrohe team set a fast tempo on an early climb to split the bunch and Bennett found himself trailing and unable to come back despite a long chase with his Deceuninck-Quick Step team mates, but Sagan could not deliver a win.
Bardet had a scan on Saturday which confirmed "a small hemorrhage" in his brain, he wrote on his Instagram page, adding he would take an indefinite period of rest. He had completed the stage to Puy Mary though dropped from fourth overall to 11th.
Australian Richie Porte took third place, at 35 enjoying a sweet resurgence on the Tour.
