2014 Tour de France: Nibali stamps his authority on race

In a demonstration of great strength on the final big climb of this year's Tour Vincenzo Nibali rode away from his rivals winning the stage by 1:10 from Thibaut Pinot. This is Nibali's fourth stage victory this year and it is the first time since Eddy Merckx that the winner of the Tour has won four stages.  

Nibali has extended his overall lead to 7:10 with Pinot taking second place from Alejandro Valverde, who was the big loser today and dropped to fourth. With his third place on the stage Rafal Majka secured his win in the King of the Mountains competition. However, there is only 15 seconds separating Pinot, Peraud and Valverde in the fight for the two remaining podium places. The Bergerac time trial on Saturday will be exciting.
