"I felt good today. I was just happy to relax in the grupetto till the finish. This morning, I didn't have a clear plan. Firstly, I tried to catch a breakaway, soon after that, another group was gone. With five riders in the lead, I decided to take it easy. It was better for me considering the difficulty of the finale."

  • Kadri delivers the first French victory

    Blel Kadri of AG2R-La Mondiale was the only survivor of the breakaway. Therefore, he delivered the first French stage win of the 2014 Tour de France whereas the battle of the giants gave a little advantage to Alberto Contador who moved up to the top ten on GC. But the Spaniard only regained three seconds from Vincenzo Nibali who reached a new summit: the 200th day of an Italian in the lead of the Tour de France.
