The MTB Olympic champion became the youngest ever winner at the summit of the iconic climb as overall leader Jonas Vingegaard held off a late attack from Tadej Pogacar.
Overall leader Jonas Vingegaard held off a late attack from Tadej Pogacar to stay on top in the general standings.
Tour debutant Pidcock, who was MTB Olympic champion last year at Tokyo 2020, became the second British rider after Geraint Thomas in 2018 - and the youngest-ever stage winner - to triumph atop the legendary climb.
"That was certainly one of my best experiences in cycling, unreal," said the 22-year-old Yorkshireman, who now sits eighth in the general classification.
"When are you literally slaloming through people, flags, fists and God knows what else... you cannot experience that anywhere else other that on the Alpe d'Huez at the Tour de France."
"It's not bad that, is it? It's made my Tour de France so far. Even if something happens and I get dropped everyday, I don't care. A stage win at my first Tour, it's not bad." - Tom Pidcock
