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.
