Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) has taken the victory of the 18th stage in the Tour de France, his third victory in this edition of the race.

The winner of the 2020 Tour de France, remained with the favourites' group during the stage as Ineos-Grenadiers controlled the pace of the pack. The Slovenian followed every move and after a last-kilometre attack by Enric Mas, he accelerated and took the win of the stage, the second in a row.

"The stage was very tough, already on the Tourmalet the pace was high," said Pogacar. "I concentrated and was waiting for the last climb, where I gave my all. I'm speechless. After what happened yesterday I'm so happy to have done it again.

"It’s unbelievable. After yesterday, today I felt good. I’m really happy with the win. It’s crazy. Cycling is a game for me since I started. I’m enjoying playing it and I’m super happy. 50% of the victory in this Tour de France is already mine - you never know! There are some stages left, but it’s good. Why should I be worried about Vingegaard on the time trial? It can happen that I lose six minutes on the ITT - let’s hope not! It’s a discipline on which I always give my 100%. It will be a new experience [to ride an ITT in the yellow jersey] and I can’t wait to do it."
