The slow-burning fight for the Tour de France's yellow jersey erupted in earnest on the remains of a once-giant volcano on Friday, with race leader Primoz Roglic using its punishing slopes to grow his overall lead.

Glancing up the final climb that reared skyward ahead, Roglic told himself: “Whoa, this will hurt.”

But it hurt even more for the Slovenian's rivals.

"We were all on the limit,” he said.

One of Stage 13's big losers was Egan Bernal, last year's champion from Colombia who was unable to match Roglic's pace on the arduous final ascent of the Puy Mary.

Bernal tumbled from second to third in the overall standings and slumped exhausted across his handlebars at the top.
