  1. Adieu

    That's it for this live text. What a belting stage - thanks for reading.

    The stage report is building here.

    Mark Cavendish's stage-by-stage guide is here.

    And head here later to download our Bespoke podcast looking back at stage 14.

    I'll be back tomorrow with live coverage of stage 15 - it's another hilly one!

  3. Post update

    There were a smattering of boos when Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome crossed the line.

    TV pictures also picked up a spectator throwing a clear liquid in Froome's face on the final climb.

    Hopefully it was water. Not sure he was doing it to help Froome cool down, mind.

  4. Post update

    Dan Martin lost a bit of time after that late puncture and has dropped one place in GC to 10th, with Jakob Fuglsang passing him.

  5. Top 10 on stage 14

    It's a while since the stage winner crossed the line, so here is the top 10 on stage 14...

    1. Omar Fraile (Spa/Astana) 4hrs 41mins 57secs
    2. Julian Alaphilippe (Fra/Quick-Step Floors) +6secs
    3. Jasper Stuyven (Bel/Trek-Segafredo) same time
    4. Peter Sagan (Svk/Bora-Hansgrohe) +12secs

    10. Thomas de Gendt (Bel/Lotto-Soudal) +37secs
  6. Post update

    So no changes to the top three on general classification but Primoz Roglic edges himself closer to them with a fine late attack.

    Romain Bardet, Nairo Quintana and Mikel Landa the big losers today.

  7. Post update

    Nairo Quintana follows, losing about 11 more seconds to Thomas, while Romain Bardet finishes three seconds further adrift.

  8. Post update

    Primoz Roglic takes the line and takes eight seconds back on the leading three on GC.

    Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome, Tom Dumoulin eventually prove inseparable and roll over the line together.

  9. Post update

    Geraint Thomas leads Chris Froome and Tom Dumoulin round that sweeping left-hand bend.

    They may lose some time to Roglic here but again they look by far and away the strongest trio in this Tour.

  10. Post update

    Primoz Roglic remains clear out front and will take some time back today. The Slovenian has 1km to go.

  11. Bardet dropped

    Those attacks have seen off Romain Bardet, who looks set to lose some time here.

  12. Froome attacks

    Now Chris Froome goes and team-mate Geraint Thomas counters!

    Tom Dumoulin briefly in trouble but he gets up to the wheel of Froome over the summit of the Cote de la Croix Neuve.

  13. Post update

    Dumoulin's attack takes Chris Froome and Nairo Quitana across.

  14. Dumoulin attacks

    Tom Dumoulin is such an impressive rider, he never gives up and grinds himself back to the lead group.

    And as soon as he does he attacks! Geraint Thomas has to swing round Egan Bernal and chase.

  15. Dumoulin gapped

    He's not in massive danger but Tom Dumoulin has lost the wheel.

    Chris Froome was also gapped briefly but is back on the wheel of Romain Bardet.

    Egan Bernal leads Geraint Thomas in pursuit of Primoz Roglic.

  16. Roglic attacks

    Primoz Roglic, fourth on GC, goes!

    Michal Kwiatkowski stays on the front to try and reel him in, getting a thumbs down in his face for his efforts.

  17. Peloton - 3km to go

    Mikel Landa comes to the front, upping the pace. Steven Kruijswijk goes with him.

    Riders are starting to be shelled out the back but still the four Team Sky riders, including Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome, remain.

  18. Post update

    No attacks from Geraint Thomas' GC rivals yet.

    Jasper Stuyven lost two minutes on this climb - but is it too tough for anyone to try anything?

  19. Post update

    The main favourites are onto these brutal slopes now.

    The selection has already been forced - Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome are near the front, still with Egan Bernal and Michal Kwiatkowski.

  20. Yates dropped

    Adam Yates is already so far down on GC he sits up and will concede more time today.

    That could actually help him contest for stage wins in the Pyrenees next week.
