Bardet wins 1st Pyrenean stage, Froome loses lead to Aru

Bardet wins 1st Pyrenean stage, Froome loses lead to Aru

Chris Froome's sign of weakness in the finale of Thursday's 12th stage of the Tour de France does not mean much, but it should give his rivals more confidence to take risks, three-time champion Greg LeMond said.

"I'm not frustrated, it's just the race - maybe they wanted to win the stage". Landa, South African Louis Meintjes (UAE Team Emirates) and Martin all finished before Froome toiled home ahead of Bennett and compatriot Simon Yates of Orica-Scott.

Bardet used a well-timed surge to claim the stage, while Froome finished 22 seconds behind him to end up in seventh place.

- An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Fabio Aru won the 2015 Giro d'Italia; he won the 2015 Vuelta a Espana. They have bigger brains than me! "I never imagined this would happen". Friday's 101km stage from Saint-Girons to Foix is expected to be a full-on battle, and Aru will have to face it with a weakened team. "My teammates did such an awesome job but I didn't have the legs at the end to finish it off".

Astana lost key domestique Dario Cataldo to a crash on Wednesday while Jakob Fuglsang, a virtual co-leader of the team coming into the Tour, suffered fractures in his hand and elbow in the same incident and was dropped on Thursday's stage.

It's still a long way to go and there's a nervous stage tomorrow. "It was such a hard finish". But what were the full standings after stage 12 at the 104th edition of the Tour and how do the various classifications now look?

The fireworks in the fight for yellow came after Steve Cummings fell short in a bid for a solo win on the 50th anniversary of Tom Simpson's death during the 1967 Tour.

In this step, with six ascents, the British Stephen Cummings (Dimension Data), a survivor of a breakaway thrown away, tipped at the summit of the port de Balès, the main difficulty of the day, with a margin of more than 1 min 30 sec on his first pursuers (De Gendt, Gautier). "I don't know, I'm not doing anything special", he said. "I committed but I didn't have the legs".
