Tarbes > Tourmalet, 117.5km. Hilltop finish.
The legendary Tourmalet saw the win of the Frenchman Thibaut Pinot with his compatriot Julian Alaphilippe still in the yellow jersey.
After a couple of difficult days, Vincenzo Nibali was the author of a long breakaway that began after only 10 kilometers from the start. “Today I felt finally better – says the Italian champion – and it was right to try something in this mountain stage. I attacked very early and after other riders arrived, I think it was a good break with strong riders but the peloton never left us too much space”.
“I am happy with my race because I consider it a step towards a complete recovery. If one is not feeling well, he is unable to escape and having succeeded is a good sign. It will not be easy but I will try again in the next stages”.
