On the first of the three Pyrenan stages, seventeen, Froome's challenge faded on the approach to the summit of the Col de Portet and he dropped to third position in the general classification, 2: Dumoulin moved into second place, 1: Thomas was able to consolidate his position in the yellow jersey by picking up six bonus seconds in the sprint thereby extending his lead over Dumoulin to 2 min 5 s.

Four main individual classifications were contested in the Tour de France, as well as a team competition. The most important was the general classification, calculated by adding each rider's finishing times on each stage.
The first three riders would get 10, 6, and 4 seconds, respectively. Time bonuses of three, two and one seconds, would be given to the first three riders to cross a "bonus point" in each of the first nine mass-start stages of the race.
It would affect the general classification, but not the points. The second classification was the points classification.
Riders received points for finishing among the highest placed in a stage finish, or in intermediate sprints during the stage. The points available for each stage finish were determined by the stage's type.
The third classification was the mountains classification. Points were awarded to the riders that reached the summit of the most difficult climbs first.
The final individual classification was the young rider classification. This was calculated the same way as the general classification, but was restricted to riders born on or after 1 January The final classification was a team classification.
This was calculated using the finishing times of the best three riders per team on each stage; the leading team was the team with the lowest cumulative time.
The number of stage victories and placings per team determined the outcome of a tie. In addition, there was a combativity award given after each stage to the rider considered, by a jury, to have "made the greatest effort and who demonstrated the best qualities of sportsmanship".
