After Bernard Hinault was weighed so he could be given his weight in coffee by cycling trade sponsor Cafe de Colombia, it was on to stage 22, a 194km ceremonial march from Clermont- Ferrand to Nevers.

A breakaway containing Hampsten, Bauer, and Kiefel was chased down by the Carrera team.

Bomtempi’s sprint victory over Hoste and Vanderaerden looked almost a formality.

LeMond remains in yellow and his victory in Paris tomorrow seems certain.

The stage results:
1. Bontempi 5:12:55 (37.18 kph)
2. Hoste s.t.
3. Vanderaerden s.t.
