Cannondale-Drapac's Rigoberto Uran has finished the last day in the Alps of the 2017 Tour de France in third position after losing some seconds to Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale).

The Colombian had one plan for the day and it was to remain with the favourites. "The important thing today was to be ahead and not lose time. The climb of the Izoard was very tough, but everything went fine," he said to the Spanish news agency EFE.

The rider crossed the finish line of the day in fifth position, just behind Chris Froome (Team Sky) and Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale) who got four bonification seconds.

Even though many expected Uran to attack in the 18th stage to get some seconds, the rider will now focus on the decisive time trial on Saturday. "We knew it was going to be difficult to attack team Sky. Now it is important to focus on the time trial, which is very complicated because it is at the end of the Tour."

Uran is currently 29 seconds behind race leader Froome and six seconds behind Bardet.
