Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) took the yellow jersey of the Tour de France 2020 after winning stage two ahead of Marc Hirschi (Sunweb).

Alaphilippe had attacked on the final climb with just over 13km to go, taking Hirschi with him, before they were joined by Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott).

The trio were narrowly able to hold off the chasing peloton with Alaphilippe launching his sprint with 200m to go. Hirschi came quickly from behind but was unable to catch the Frenchman before the line.

Yates rolled in just behind in third, narrowly ahead of the peloton.
