With the 2020 Tour de France providing multiple mountain days in just the first week, any GC action on the uphills has been lacking, with contenders for the yellow jersey pretty much riding up the climbs together.

On stage four to Orcières-Merlette, Primož Roglič won the reduced bunch sprint for the line, taking valuable bonus seconds, while Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) finished one second ahead of the GC group atop Mount Aigoual on stage six.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
