Tour de France: drama – Contador out, Nibali seizes the race

Vincenzo Nibali stamped his authority on the 2014 Tour with an impressive stage victory on a very tough day that saw Alberto Contador crash out injuring his knee. This is Nibali's second stage victory in the Tour – see updated list of Tour stage wins – 1903-2014 here.

It is difficult to see anyone now challenging Nibali for the overall victory. Good to see Joaquin Rodriguez has recovered from his difficult start and now has the Mountains Jersey. There was another amazing performance from Tony Martin trying to help Michal Kwiatkowski to get a high overall placing, which ultimately proved to be unsuccessful. 

As expected Tony Gallopin lost Yellow but put up a brave fight.
