Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) powered to victory from the breakaway in stage 13 of the 2022 Tour de France

The Danish rider took advantage of the indecision in the six man breakaway, to launch an attack under 15 kilometres from the finish in Saint-Étienne. The vicious move distanced Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers), Matteo Jorgenson (Movistar) and Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) who had been part of a seven man breakaway for most of the 193 kilometre transitional stage out of the Alps.
