After Rafal Majka in the Alps, another of Alberto Contador's domestiques claimed his first stage victory at the Tour de France. Michael Rogers managed to get rid of the Europcar duo formed of Thomas Voeckler and Cyril Gautier to arrive solo in Bagnères-de-Luchon. In the yellow jersey group, Thibaut Pinot took a significant advantage over direct rivals Tejay van Garderen and Romain Bardet while Vincenzo Nibali comfortably retained the overall lead.
Off the bus quotes
BMC and Tejay Van Garderen's team director Yvon Ledanois is convinced the battle of the Pyrenees will start for good in this long stage between Carcassonne and Bagneres-de-Luchon, an especially in the Port de Bales, the final climb, and its long descent towards the finish line.
