Miguel Angel Lopez won stage 17 of the Tour de France at the summit of the Col de la Loze as Primoz Roglic distanced Tadej Pogacar in the brutal finale to strengthen his grip on yellow.

As the gradients at the top of the 21 kilometre climb hit 24 per cent, Lopez was able to ride away from the other contenders for a stage win that moves the Colombian up to third overall.

Roglic followed over the line 15 seconds later with Pogacar losing his wheel in the final metres, conceding 15 seconds on the road and more in bonuses that see his deficit in second place grow to 57 seconds.

The Tour continues on Thursday with the 168km run from Méribel to La Roche-sur-Foron and concludes in Paris on September 20 with the 122km stage from Mantes-la-Jolie to Paris Champs-Élysées.
