Colombian Egan Bernal is "not obsessing" with what will happen in the 2019 Tour de France, where he has promised to help Ineos team-mate Geraint Thomas defend his title.

Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) appears to be fading away from the overall lead. The Frenchman still maintains a 1-35  yellow jersey lead over Thomas in second. Bernal moved up after the Pyrenean mountains this weekend, now sitting fifth at 2-02 on the race's second rest day in Nîmes.
