2014 Tour de France: Polish rider Rafal Majka wins Alpine stage

Young Polish rider, Rafal Majka, won the very tough Alpine stage to Risoul. He managed to hold off another late charge from Vincenzo Nibali, who again took more time out of his rivals. This is Majka's first Tour de France stage win. See updated list of Tour de France stage winners from 1903 - 2014.  

Nibali now has a 4:37 advantage over Alejandro Valverde, who lost time on Nibali as well as Romain Bardet, Thibault Pinot and Tejay Van Garderen. Now only two riders are within five minutes of Nibali, who will surely win, barring a very bad day on the Pyrénees or an accident.
