Jonas Vingegaard threw everything at Tadej Pogacar to replace the defending champion as the overall Tour de France leader with a win in an epic and grueling 11th stage on Wednesday.

Vingegaard, last year’s runner-up, attacked 4.9 km from the finish to drop Pogacar, who was attacked relentlessly by the Dane’s Jumbo-Visma team all day and cracked after looking unbreakable during the first block of racing.
