The first stage in the Pyrenees saw a break away stay clear and so fans were treated to two thrilling battles Рthe one for the stage and the other for the GC Classification. In the former, three time World TT Champion Michael Rogers used all his experience to outfox Europcar on the downhill finish into Bagn̬res-de-Luchon. In the GC battle, Thibaut Pinot gapped everyone including Nibali on the ascent to pull time on his rivals and take over the white jersey.


21 riders in the lead
After a very frantic opening to an equally long stage, a 21-man breakaway took shape in three waves, starting at km 28 just after Rafal Majka (Tinkoff) took the only point awarded at the 4th category côte de Fanjeaux and therefore deprived Joaquim Rodriguez of the polka dot jersey as the two of them were equal on points as the race left Carcassonne following the second rest day.

Bernhard Eisel and Vassil Kiriyenka (Sky), Jon Izagirre (Movistar), Michael Rogers (Tinkoff), Jan Bakelants and Michal Kwiatkowski (OPQS), Samuel Dumoulin and Matteo Montaguti (AG2R), Tom-Jelte Slagter (Garmin), José Serpa (Lampre), Jérémy Roy (FDJ), Tony Gallopin (Lotto), Greg van Avermaet (BMC), Cyril Gautier, Kévin Reza and Thomas Voeckler (Europcar), Michael Albasini and Jens Keukeleire (Orica), Roger Kluge (IAM), Anthony Delaplace and Florian Vachon (Bretagne) were united at km 73, right after Montaguti passed the côte de Pamiers alone in the lead. The composition of the breakaway put an end to fifty kilometres of hard racing.

The 21 escapees got a maximum lead of 12 minutes just before climbing to Port de Balès with 35km to go where Voeckler attacked 5km before the summit. By then the 21 up breakaway was down to just a small group of half a dozen with Europcar doing their best to 1-2 Rogers and Serpa and riders like Kiriyenka being dropped before riding at their own pace back to the front.

A trio contested the KOM; Serpa, Voeckler and Rogers, while Thibaut Pinot attacked the yellow jersey group with four kilometres to go to the summit. His first victim was Tejay van Garderen and then white jersey Romain Bardet eventually lost contact as well as. So did Alejandro Valverde and the yellow jersey Nibali close to the top but with a long down hill run to the finish, the gaps soon closed up between Pinot, Nibali, Valverde and a few other GC contenders.

Out front, on the downhill, Gautier and Kiriyenka rejoined the leading trio where there were ‘words’ between Rogers and Voeckler as the cooperation between the leaders was non existent. Both Serpa and Rogers knew of Voeckler’s reputation of being unbeaten at Bagnères-de-Luchon with two previous victories there and Tommy also had a teammate there, Gautier. With 4.5km to go, Rogers first jumped Voeckler and co to chase down Gautier and then took Gautier by surprise and rode away from the Frenchman as well.

Chase they did but Europcar had no choice but be content with Voeckler’s second place and Gautier’s most aggressive rider prize as Rogers was in no mood to be caught. Ten minutes back down the road, among the GC contenders, Pinot (below) made the biggest profit of the first Pyrenean stage as he came in ahead of rival Bardet by 1.50 on the line and took the white jersey from him. Van Garderen lost more time as well and slipped a place on the GC.



Michael Rogers: “Is amazing. I knew once I got to the bottom of the last climb, I knew the race began for me. I knew Voeckler would be hard to beat and I tried a few times to drop him but I couldn’t on the climb. That left three of us and I knew I had to outwit them in the finale. Voeckler had a teammate behind and he played that bargaining chip and I said to him I wouldn’t have that. I said don’t play games with me because you are not going to beat me today, no way”.

“On the descent, I knew I had been that position too many times not to win, and it was crash or win”.

“I think there was a lot of joy from the years coming out there. I have tried so hard to win a stage of the Tour and this year I have changed mentally. I know I have changed upstairs. I am more hungry. Opportunities seem clear to me now and I’m not scared of the outcome anymore. Previously, I was scared to try something because I was scared of failure but once believe in that and are not scared of the outcome, things become a lot clear and opportunities arise.”

“I’ve told myself: ‘Stop living someone else’s life’. Goals are sometimes very hard to understand. In the past I’ve tried to win Grand Tours. Now I know I can win 7-days Tours. But I can’t compete in Grand Tours against the likes of Contador, Nibali, Valverde… I have to get out of the overall classification to be able to break away. Had Alberto not crashed, I would probably not be here as a stage winner”.

“I would have been very tired by now because of defending the yellow jersey. Alberto wouldn’t have won the Tour easily. Nibali is in the form of his life. There would have been a great battle. Now we have to wait for next year to see that battle and I can tell you that Alberto is already thinking of next year’s Tour de France. Now that I got my opportunity to win, I could be grateful to him for having abandoned the Tour but no, I’m heartbroken.”

“Our plan B was to go for stage wins. I knew today and tomorrow’s stages were suited to my characteristics. I remembered this finish from 2010 when Voeckler won, so I knew he’d be motivated again. But it was very hard to get into the breakaway, particularly because of the strong head wind. We couldn’t make it until Garmin managed to put one guy in the front group”.

“After 30km, I was in a breakaway with four guys and one of them was sitting on, not taking any turn. He was the Europcar rider [Kévin Reza]. He was saying: ‘No, my team-mate is chasing behind’. Then at the bottom of the last climb, when we were three riders left, Voeckler said to me: ‘I can’t ride, I have a team-mate behind’. I told him ‘I already heard that 200km ago!'”

“I wasn’t going to be fooled on that one. With three Europcar riders in the front group of 21, Voeckler could control, but when they were two out of five, it became harder for him. It’s great it worked out fine for me! It’s the dream of every cyclist to win at the Tour de France.”

Vincenzo Nibali: “In front of the Fabio Casartelli memorial, I’ve thought of his family, which is the most important considering the circumstances of the tragedy. My memory of the accident is the one of a child. I remember seeing it on TV but I didn’t understand very well. As a young rider, I won an award in his name. I want to dedicate a victory to his family”.

“It was a very long stage of 240km. In the first 70, my team worked enormously to catch the escapees. We’ve had to close a few gaps. Once we reached the ascent to Port de Balès, Movistar rode hard and I paid attention because Valverde was the most dangerous in my mind. He was likely to go very fast downhill”.

“At the top, when Pinot accelerated, I was mostly looking for a bottle with sugar to grab. I don’t underestimate Pinot. I don’t underestimate anyone. I’ve learnt that last year at the Vuelta [racing against Chris Horner]. When Pinot attacked, I went to catch him straight away. Valverde let a gap. I didn’t let the gap grow.”

“At that point, there weren’t team-mates of mine any more but they’ve worked hard since I took the yellow jersey on day two in Sheffield. I’m not worried because I also haven’t seen many team-mates from other teams. Such a stage takes its toll onto everyone. It’ll remain in the legs of many riders”.

“Tomorrow it’s short, only 120km but it’ll be much more intense. It can be difficult as well. We’ll handle the race day by day. We’ve worked well until now. We’ll try to defend the yellow jersey just as well in the next few days”.

“Oleg Tinkoff came and congratulated me. I also congratulated him for his team’s stage wins. He’s a special person. He loves the sport. He’s got a true passion for cycling. We need more sponsors like him. Besides being a sponsor, he’s present at the races. I understand that he’s full of praise for Alberto Contador who needs support now to think of the Vuelta.”

Alejandro Valverde: Wearing the Endura colours of Movistar, the 2nd placed rider said “We were the ones who did all the pace into the final climb to hurt some of our rivals – that was our plan already since this morning. I think it was a good day for us, because we opened big gaps with threatening riders close in the overall standings. In the final meters of Balès, I chose not to follow the pace Pinot was putting into my group, because I knew he had to reach the summit with some gap over the rest so as not to suffer on the downhill. He set such a rhythm that even Nibali got dropped, but as soon as we started descending, we reached him down and kept the pace high with Gadret and Izagirre, who made a great work. We’re keeping the same goal, which is the podium in Paris, and now it’s all about tomorrow’s stage, which is going to be super hard.”

Thibaut Pinot: “It’s a fantastic day. My goal today was to take the white jersey and gain time over my adversaries, namely Alejandro Valverde and Romain Bardet. I felt great. I had my best legs at the Tour so far, so I had to profit from it”.

“I wanted to try something. I’ve wanted to accelerate up to the Port de Balès when I’ve realized I could drop Van Garderen and Bardet off. Team work has been great. For instance, having Jérémy Roy on my side after he stepped down from the breakaway was precious. It was the plan that I’d do the downhill with him”.

“In the fight for the white jersey, I’ve gained 1.30 over Bardet and I’m stronger than him in time trialing in theory. But I have to stay calm because a bad day is always possible at the Tour. I have to gain more time over Valverde and Van Garderen. The second place overall seems reachable. But it won’t be easy to make Valverde crack. He never loses much time. Péraud is maybe even more of a threat as he’s a true specialist of time trialing.”

Tejay van Garderen – down a place on GC – “Movistar just made an insane tempo and it was just too hard,” van Garderen said. “I just kind of didn’t have the legs and felt a bit empty. I am really hoping I can bounce tomorrow and recover the legs I had in the Alps,” van Garderen said. “It is not finished. There are still three hard GC (general classification) days to come, so I am hoping to bounce back.”

Romain Bardet: Finishing 1.50 behind Thibaut Pinot in Bagneres-de-Luchon, Romain Bardet is now 5th overall. “I was fine during most of the stage but I cracked on the last climb. I was too nervous at the bottom and I faltered on the ascent. You must learn to manage your hard times. I want to thank the whole of the AG2R team for helping me to not panic because mentally, it was very hard”.

“Samuel Dumoulin waited for me and we managed to limit the damage on the descent. When my idea was to attack, it’s very difficult to take. Even if I lost a battle, there are still two great stages in the Pyrenees. I might have a little bit more freedom for tomorrow’s stage which suits me well. I hope I have better legs than today. I think that Jean-Christophe (Peraud) can make it on the podium this year. We’re going to discuss it with the technical staff but it’s a true possibility.”

Tommy Voeckler: Winner of the last two Tour stages held in Bagneres-de-Luchon, Thomas Voeckler (EUC) came close to the hat-trick but the Frenchman had to be content with second place behind Michael Rogers. “It’s extremely disappointing. Some might be satisfied with second place but it’s not the case for me. I reached the top in second position with Serpa and Rogers. We worked together well and then they attacked me in turn. Then Cyril (Gautier) came back and went on the descent.”

“When Rogers countered, he didn’t have the strength to take the wheel. It was real close. To outnumber the rest in a break can be a handicap on a downhill finale like this. If Cyril had been able to follow Rogers, he would have done it. But he’s as disappointed as I am. There were two of us at the front, we have to consider this as a failure. Since the start of the Tour, I didn’t make any feat. I was not far today.”

Rafal Majka (above): (New KoM leader) “This morning, I wasn’t sure I’d wear the polka dot jersey tonight. I was watching the breakaways and I tried to score one point at the first KOM sprint. I was fighting with my compatriot Michal Kwiatkowski who was looking to ride away from the bunch. I passed him on the line. I’m glad Michael Rogers won a stage after I did it but the Tour de France is not finished. There are two hard stages to come. We’ll try to do something. It’s difficult for me to defend the polka dot jersey because there are many points in contention and I have two serious adversaries with Joaquim Rodriguez and Vincenzo Nibali.”
