This stage has put a strain on all the participants of the tour! the Pyrenees do not mess around.
Anthony Delaplace and Florian Vachon, however, have not pulled back, nay, with a group of other fugitives have led to a flight of 150 km finishing in 12th and 13th position.
Congratulations to Brice Feillu 19mA which maintains its position in the overall standings.
Stage won by Michael Rogers, 2. Voeckler, 3. Kiriyenka.
