The 10th stage of the Tour de France was interrupted for almost a quarter of an hour on Tuesday due to the presence of demonstrators on the road, 38 kilometers from the finish in Megève in Haute-Savoie. The race was neutralized and a new start was given respecting the differences recorded at the time of the stop, announced the race direction.

A demonstration claimed by a group of pro-climate activists

The leading runner, the Italian Alberto Bettiol (EF Education), was able to cross this barrage formed by demonstrators, possibly half a dozen people sitting on the road, through a curtain of smoke bombs. Alberto Bettiol was stopped a few moments later to be able to respect the gaps, which were around twenty seconds over the 24 pursuers and almost seven and a half minutes over the peloton.

A group of pro-climate activists, called “last renovation”, claimed responsibility for the operation on social networks.
