Vincenzo Nibali proved once again to being the absolute strongest rider of the 2014 Tour de France. He crowned his domination by winning solo at Hautacam while second placed Thibaut Pinot was the other beneficiary of the last Pyrenean stage. Third placed Rafal Majka is mathematically the King of the Mountains.
Fifth in Hautacam and still 6th overall, 11:34 behind Vincenzo Nibali, Tejay Van Garderen said he did his very best but was not able to drop Thibaut Pinot on the last climb.
