Superman Lopez Flattens Brutal Climb | Tour de France Stage 17 2020 | Lanterne Rouge | ITV Sport

Catch up with highlights from the Tour de France on ITV Hub: https://bit.ly/2QDT6kL

The queen stage of the Tour de France 2020 meant some GC action was in the works, given the brutal final last 5km of the mountain top finish. Miguel Angel Lopez won stage 17 of the Tour de France at the summit of the Col de la Loze above Meribel as Primoz Roglic distanced Tadej Pogacar in the brutal finale to strengthen his grip on yellow.

As the gradients at the top of the 21-kilometre climb hit 24 per cent, the Colombian Lopez was able to ride away from the other contenders for a stage win that moves him up to third overall. Roglic cemented his position as leader of the tour de france, gaining 17 seconds on Pogacar with only one mountain stage remaining before the stage 20 ITT.

I figured out what I like about these videos: they don’t treat me like an idiot. The commentary isn’t dummed-down. There are strategic insights, subtle in-jokes and lots of technical facts too. It doesn’t treat me like I have an IQ of 80. Great stuff 👍

Pogačar's hair always sticking out of his helmet the same way has become iconic

Dude, you're my favorite new commentator on Le Tour! And I've been watching since '84. Ditching The Move for your feed. LOVED your unapologetic take on Alaphilippe! Finally someone dismisses his alleged "Panache" as just mindless peacocking. #AboutTime Chapeau, mate. 👌

Ok Lantern R, that was brilliant. Like the succession of the Dalai Lama, you have been plucked from the mountain tops to be the ordained heir to Viscount Phil Liggett. Should he die.

Insane performance by Lopez, really deserves a podium spot this tour, also really nice consistency when you look at his grand tour placements, hope he can win one some day

When they cut back to Roglic, after they had shown Lopez taking the stage, Roglic had some how time travelled 10-15 seconds ahead of Pogacar

So happy to see Carapaz at least try to salvage something for Ineos, and he is back at it, on the attack 3 days in a row.

I wish Kuss wasn't called back... It looked like a great duel for the win...

it seems Ineos are recovering their tour now with riders having more freedom to join attacks since GC isn't a concern anymore.

No point commenting “Free Carapaz” because I forget this isn’t LRs channel. But we do need a new hashtag.0

The last Days Alaphilippe did more than one strange attack. I my opnionen attacking in strange situations shouldn't be rewarded with the red number ... Hope the overall most combative rider goes to Hirschi ... or maybe to the whole Bora team :DD
Carapaz had 3 amazing days now. Could also be a choice.

Landa was a complete shambles. Had his entire team on the front doing all they could and he doesn't even go for it once. He's like Uran, Pinot, Porte et al. People think they could do a Pantani at any time but no. Stop.

What was it Froome said ... oh yeah, Roglic always fades. Well I guess it's still possible, but who here thinks anyone other than he will win the Tour?

LR surprised to see Primoz use a tactic he suggested... We all know Rog is straight in the team bus after each stage firing up the rouge report

How is it your commentary is about 10000x better than on TV? Its to the point and exactly the information that is needed! We need you live on ITV sport from now on please! Whats the deal with you uploading this via ITV sport? Have they hired you to be their digital commentator!?

Any chance MAL could take second over the next 2 stages? Pogacar didn't look bad, but he didn't look unstoppable either.

Carapaz should get the nod as a TdF co-leader at the very least next year. He obviously surprised everyone at the Giro with Movistar, but if he’s treated like a possible team leader in the offseason perhaps he’ll be equipped to ride like it the first two weeks? He was the one who was supposed to ride the Giro, I believe.

Nobody had tried this before at this tour... except for Ineos's also failed attempt the other day.

A great summary and analysis of this epic stage. We cycling fans with a higher IQ crave listening to Lantern Rouge. Please spoil us more in the future. You will go far.

alejandro vizcaino:
Carapaz never held a strong pace on the climbs like Kiatwo did for Egan, and he is now pulling away from the peloton on three consecutive days? Reminds me of his Movistar days when he never “seemed” to have anything in the tank to help Nairo in the tour. He clearly leaves no doubt that he is not willing to ride for any Colombian. Carapaz 👎🏻

Roglic got a confidence boost on this stage. But it's not in the bag with a very hard stage today and a TT to come.

Only cyclists know how hard such climbs are. At times you begin to question your decision to be a cyclist... even if just for the fun of it. Every sight of such climbs make your heart beat pop

Roglic will win if he doesn't crash or puncture or something.
Pete Chambers
Pete Chambers:
Loved this stage but do have a question that has been bugging me. If a rider (such as Pogacar) has the white and mountain jersey then he wears what is considered the more valuable one. However, do both jersey wins go on his palmares as he has technically won both? It would seem unfair that the rider (who was only the best young rider because of another riders achievements) had this on their palmares.
Alastair Wood
Alastair Wood:
Two things how tf did Carapaz not get Combativity Award, and if you are wearing a Jersey becuase someone occupies two who gets the prize money something always wonder bit random but hey when you have 5 hours of no breakaway on some stages you think about these things
