Thibaut Pinot has won stage 14 of the Tour de France after finishing the 117.5km mountain stage in 3:10:20.

Tour leader Julian Alaphilippe finished second ahead of Steven Kruijswijk.

Reigning champion Geraint Thomas finished in eighth to stay in second place overall, but lost 30 seconds to Alaphilippe.

The British rider is now two minutes and two seconds behind Frenchman after finishing second to him at the time trial on Friday.

The Deceuninck-Quick Step rider attacked Thomas in the final kilometre after staying on his tail for the majority of the stage. Thomas then fell back and Alaphilippe stretched his lead to two minutes and two seconds.
