Dylan Teuns won at Le Grand Bornand at the end of a rain-soaked stage 8. Two years after his first Tour de France stage win at La Planche des belles filles, the winner of the 2017 Arctic Race of Norway proved Bahrain to be victorious for two consecutive days as he soloed to victory in the ascent to col de la Colombière.
Tadej Pogacar outclassed all the other GC favourites to take over from Mathieu van der Poel in the lead of the overall classification.
Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Representative of HM the King for Humanitarian Works and Youth Affairs, expressed his ‘utmost delight’ after seeing Team Bahrain Victorious secure another stage win in the Tour de France.
"The team did it again. We have full confidence in the abilities of the team's cyclists. We were optimistic we would win again," he said. The team also won the 7th stage through Matej Mohoric.
