France's most iconic sporting event - an organised protest against French government policy - was interrupted by a bicycle race overnight, resulting in the accidental teargassing of several Tour De France riders.
Froome cracked in the feared 17th stage of the Tour de France through the Pyrenees, solidifying Sky teammate Geraint Thomas' hold on the yellow jersey.
Ireland's Dan Martin (UAE) finished second at 28secs behind Quintana, with Thomas third at 47 and Slovenian Primoz Roglic (Lotto-Jumbo) in fourth at 52.
Thomas now leads by one minute and 59 seconds from Team Sunweb's Tom Dumoulin, with Froome falling to third, two minutes and 31 seconds down after conceding another 48 seconds.

Julian Alaphlippe won stage 16 of the 2018 Tour de France from the breakaway after Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) crashed on the descent of the Col du Portillon while in the lead. Really bad. When he somehow climbed out of the ravine and hopped back on his bike, it was a minor miracle.
The race was just four stages short of coming to Paris, where the race ends of the Champs Elysees when the Quick-Step Floors rider had to call it a day because of the horrid crash. No, but the first attack of Roglic, I saw that Froome was in difficulty, but I didn't know if it was a bluff or not.
Tour organizers said police used tear gas to disperse the protesters as the peloton approached. "In that final climb anything can happen", said Thomas.
If there was any doubt that Froome is on side, Thomas revealed he had told him via team radio that he was struggling, giving Thomas licence to follow Dumoulin and Roglic. "There could be big gap, and different scenarios, as long as we don't race against each other".
Belgian rider Philippe Gilbert crashed earlier in the stage while in the lead when descending from the Col de Portet-d'Aspet, hitting a wall and flipping off his bike but avoiding major injury.
Thomas finally acknowledged on Wednesday night that he was in "a good position" before adding: "But I am not going to change my approach".
"My intention was never to criticise, just to draw some attention to the fact that I was getting pretty anxious about our guys", Brailsford added.
