MERIBEL (France), Sept 16 — Colombia’s Miguel Angel Lopez won stage 17 of the Tour de France today to climb third in the overall standings as race leader Primoz Roglic extended his advantage.

The race climbed to 2,304m altitude atop the Col de La Loze where Slovenian rookie Tadej Pogacar lost a handful of seconds to his compatriot Roglic in the race for the yellow jersey on a day the 2019 champion Egan Bernal withdrew. — AFP
