Peters rode solo into the finish at Loudenvielle after proving himself the strongest man of the breakaway group.

The Frenchman beat Toms Skujins (Trek-Segafredo) and Carlos Verona (Movistar) by 47 seconds, having dropped eventual fourth-placed man Ilnur Zakarin (CCC Team) on the descent of the day’s penultimate climb, the Port de Balès.

“This is crazy, absolutely crazy. I had a dream to win a stage in the Tour de France and I’ve done it,” Peters said afterward. “To be honest Zakarin was better than me on the climb but I did everything I could. I kept telling myself, telling myself I’m the best, I’m the strongest. I really did everything I could.”
