Here's today's top ten for Stage 17...
0km
Pauwels and Yates come home over three minutes down - the Belgian distancing the Briton on the home straight. Yates will keep the white jersey, but his gap over Meintjes will be cut.
0km
The Aru and Martin group comes home about 1:44 down on Roglic, so the Italian will move off the podium positions today.

Landa leads the chasing pack onto the home straight... Bardet opens it up... but Uran powers through to take second place, with Froome pipping Bardet on the line. So that's six seconds to Uran and four to Froome. They crossed the line 1:13 down on Roglic.

Victory for Primoz Roglic of LottoNL-Jumbo, who crosses the line with his arms aloft. Who'd have thought that would happen when the Slovenian crashed earlier on the first climb of the day...

Under the flamme rouge for the Slovakian, who is about to win a stage in his debut Tour - just like he did in his debut Giro last year.

With bonus seconds up for grabs at the finish, we can expect a fierce sprint for second and third place in the yellow jersey group...

Roglic is in time trial mode now as he nears the finish. Only a mechanical or freak crash will stop him now. A great tonic to the LottoNL-Jumbo team following the withdrawal yesterday of George Bennett, and the earlier withdrawal of Robert Gesink in the opening week of the race.

The gap is back up to 1:25 for Roglic, while the Aru group is now more than half a minute behind the Froome chasing group, so the Italian will move off the podium today.

Yates is riding with Pauwels in pursuit of his rivals, but the Briton will be the big loser of the day - although he should still keep the white jersey from Louis Meintjes (who trailed him by 3:58 this morning).

The gap is down to 1:15 but that won't bother Roglic - he just needs to keep out of trouble and, once the road levels out a little, use his time trialling skills to power to the line and a maiden stage win on the Tour.

Roglic is going his best Froome impression by hugging the top tube on this fast descent. He should be fine provided he avoids any mishap. The gap is still 1:27 for the Slovenian. Yates is one minute behind the yellow jersey group, and 35 seconds behind the Aru chasing group.
17km
Landa has rejoined the yellow jersey group. Behind a group forms including Aru, Martin, Meintjes, Contador and Atapuma. Yates is further back.

Once they meet the main road at the top of the Lautaret, the descent to Serre Chevalier is much less technical. Roglic is still 1:28 ahead and so it's looking good for him as long as he can survive these final bends, and avoid a mechanical.

Barguil's lead in the polka dot jersey standings is down to 49 points after Roglic's ride today - and there's still another 58 points up for grabs before the end of the race, so it's still a mathematical possibility that the Slovenian will catch the Frenchman.

Roglic has four riders in pursuit: Froome, Bardet, Uran and Barguil. Aru and Meintjes are another 20 seconds back. Contador seems to have disappeared - ditto Martin and Yates.

This is a hair-raising descent along a twisting, narrow road with sharp drops off the side. Any false move and it's curtains. Roglic has 1:30 now. Heart-in-mouth stuff.
26.8km
Barguil catched Contador just ahead of the summit, with the yellow jersey group just behind. They trail Roglic by 1:45. Aru and Meintjes have a small gap to close, while Yates is further back.
