2014 Tour de France: after Yellow Tony Gallopin grabs a first stage win
After taking the Yellow Jersey on 13th July and holding during Bastille Day, Tony Gallopin won today's stage through the Juras. His chance looked gone when he was caught by the leading chasing group at the bottom of the final descent. However, some hesitation in the group allowed him to jump away and just managed to stay clear by the line. This was Gallopin's first Tour stage win. Another exciting race today!
Overall Nibali is still comfortably in Yellow, while Peter Sagan despite his probable disappointment in not getting a stage win, continues to extend his lead in the Green Jersey with 301 points to 164 for Bryan Coquard.
Tomorrow is another lumpy stage from Bourg-en-Bresse to St Etienne before the two Alpine stages on Friday and Saturday.
