There’s still plenty to ride for as the 2016 Tour de France goes into its second and final rest day, in Switzerland, despite big gaps opening up in some of the jersey classifications.
Team Sky’s defending Tour de France champion Chris Froome wears the yellow jersey – stage 17 will mark the 39th time the Kenyan-born Brit has pulled on the maillot jaune – with a 1’47” lead over second-placed Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo).
Fellow Brit Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange), who will join Froome at the Rio 2016 Olympics after the Tour, leads the youth classification and wears the white jersey of best young rider – which he has held since the day the flamme rouge collapsed on top of him in stage seven.
Following his stage 16 victory in Bern, Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) is fast closing in on the fifth points classification win of his career, while team-mate Rafal Majka is the current wearer of the polka dot jersey.
Let’s recap on the race so far and take a look at what’s to left play for in the final week. Here’s how everything stands with five stages of the 2016 Tour de France remaining.
