Scroll down to the official results.I know what DNF means, but HD? I can't recall seeing this acronym. What does it stand for?

It means that the rider finished but was outside the time limit so won't officially be classified. I can't remember what it stands for in French.

"HD" is hors delai, meaning that the rider made it to the finish line, but outside the allowed time limit, which is measured as a percentage of the finishing rider's time. In a stage race, if you finish "HD", then you're out of the race, the same as if you DNF. "DNF" riders quit somewhere along the course, and didn't make it to the finish line.
