2:59 p.m. : It gets seriously complicated for the breakaway. Laengen, the only rider from the Pogacar team present at the front, let himself get off the hook to come and lend a hand to his teammates, who are driving hard behind. There is only 1’39” difference.

2:45 p.m. : The gap between the breakaway and the peloton remains blocked around two minutes. It is difficult to get along among the 11 leading men and behind, the yellow jersey team, Pogacar, started rolling. The Slovenian seems to intend to play for the win this afternoon.

2:25 p.m. : At the back of the peloton, Mathieu Van der Poel drags his sentence. The Dutch rider, in difficulty since the start of the Tour, could well give up. “If this continues, I quit! he said this morning.

2:21 p.m. : Geschke is joined by Durbridge, Pedersen, Barthe, Ciccone, Laengen, Erviti, AsgreenKamna, Teuns and Schachmann. The peloton lets go, we probably hold the breakaway of this day.

2:10 p.m. : A man stands out in the lead, Simon Geschke. But the German from Cofidis risks not going very far by leaving alone. He is 14 seconds ahead.

2:01 p.m. : The breakaway of the day has still not formed, despite numerous attempts. We could see that Thibaut Pinot was on the lookout.

1:31 p.m. : The Frenchman can in any case console himself by being the most applauded rider on these roads. His name is displayed all the way up to the board, as reported by France 3 Franche-Comté.

2:04 p.m. : “Inevitably, I am happy to arrive in the mountains, especially at home. We will say that the Tour begins now for me.”

This seventh stage will have a special taste for Thibaut Pinot, who lives 15km from the finish line. But don’t bet too much on the French climber, he should now play his role as teammate for David Gaudu, the Groupama FDJ rider.

1:22 p.m. : To watch the race live, you can tune in to france.tv. The start has just been given.

1:21 p.m. : Yesterday, Tadej Pogacar took the yellow jersey and is the favorite for victory tonight if the stage ends with a big explanation between leaders. Unless a breakaway goes to the end. Franceinfo sports summarizes the challenges of this stage here.

1:20 p.m. : Here is the profile of this stage, 176.3 km long. The runners will cross the Vosges before arriving in Haute-Saône. If you are tempted to take a nap, arrival is scheduled for 5.17 p.m. (so set an alarm a little before 5 p.m.).

1:20 p.m. : I take the wheel of Thibaud (that of franceinfo, easier to follow) to make you live this 7th stage of the Tour. On the program, the first real difficulty of the race, with an arrival at the Super board of beautiful girls, a first category climb.

1:19 p.m. : To follow this promising stage, I am accompanied this afternoon by the excellent Thomas Baïetto, who will tell you about the peloton, Tadej Pogacar and, of course, Thibaut Pinot.

8:10 p.m. : The day after the crazy cobblestone stage, and on the eve of the first arrival at the top of this Tour de France 2022, it was difficult to imagine such a scenario today. With an average of 49.4 km/h, this sixth stage of the Grande Boucle, 219.9 kilometers long, was one of the fastest in the history of the Tour. The recap is to follow here:

00:03 : It’s midnight, time to take a last look at today’s news:

#POLITICS Elisabeth Borne gave her general policy speech to the deputies this afternoon. The head of government has continued to defend the compromise, the government’s new method.

The pressure is mounting on Boris Johnson. More than 40 members of the government resigned and a delegation of ministers asked him to leave 10 Downing Street.

Elisabeth Borne invited to wear a mask in the “closed spaces where there are many people”without making one “obligation”, while France is in the middle of the 7th wave.

At the end of a crazy stage, the Australian Simon Clarke won at Arenberg, while Wout van Aert keeps his yellow jersey.
