Tour de France 2016: Day 14 Results - Tom Dumoulin wins Stage 13
This was Tom Dumoulin's second stage victory of the Tour de France.
Dutchman Tom Dumoulin of Team Giant-Alpecin won stage 13 of Tour de France on Friday. The 25-year-old won the individual time trial stage with a timing of 50 minutes and 15 seconds to take his second stage victory of the Tour.
But the big winner of the day was defending champion Chris Froome of Team Sky, who came second in the race to extend his overall lead to one minute and 47 seconds as he clocked 51 minutes and 18 seconds covering a distance of 37-5km from Bourg-Saint-Andeol to La Caverne du Pont-D'Arc. Bauke Mollema went second in the overall standings as he finished sixth in the race.
Nelson Oliveira of Team Movistar finished third, followed by Jerome Coppel of Team IAM Cycling in the fourth and Rohan Dennis of Team BMC Racing in the fifth position respectively.
There were certain doubts whether the officials would go on with the race on Friday after Thursday’s attack in Nice which saw at least 84 people die after a lorry drove through a crowd that was celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city.
"We want this day to be a day of dignity as a tribute to the victims," said race director Christian Prudhomme. A minute's silence was observed before the first rider set off on the course, and another minute's silence was observed as the jersey holders stood on stage after the day's racing had finished.
Stage 14 of the Tour will see cyclists compete in the flat stage as they will cover a distance of 208.5km from Montélimar to Villars-les-Dombes (Parc des Oiseaux).
