Julian Alapahilippe extended his overall lead at the Tour de France Friday winning the 27.2-kilometer individual time-trial at Pau on stage 13 to keep the yellow jersey and send his home fans wild. Defending champion Geraint Thomas was second while his Ineos co-captain Egan Bernal dropped down the overall standings and lost his best young rider's white jersey finishing way off the pace.Thomas dropped 14 seconds on the French overall leader to slip to 1 minute 26 seconds adrift in the general classification after the baking hot race-against-the-clock around the Pyrenean town.Saturday's stage 14 is a short 117-km run over two Category 1 mountains with a summit finish at the fearsome classic Tour de France destination the Tourmalet, which some translate as "bad trip" and which is the highest mountain pass in the Pyrenees.
