PERIGUEUX, France, July 26, 2014 (AFP) – Italian rider Vincenzo Nibali
secured Tour de France victory on Saturday as Germany’s Tony Martin dominated
the penultimate 20th stage time trial and the host nation celebrated podium
success.

Barring a final stage catastrophe on Sunday, Astana rider Nibali is assured
of winning his first Tour title on the Champs Elysees as he takes an
impressive 7min 52sec lead to Paris.

It is the first Tour victory by an Italian since Marco Pantani in 1998.
But for the rider nicknamed “The Shark” his achievement was taking time to
sink in.

“I haven’t even thought about it yet, I’ve always thought about giving my
maximum and not about what I might achieve or records or entering into Tour
history,” he said.

“I just thought about getting to the end of each stage and getting on my
bike because that’s what I like the most.”

Three-time world time trial champion Martin was peerless in his speciality
as he finished a huge 1min 39sec ahead of the rest, clocking an impressive
time of 1hr 06:21.

Dutch time trial champion Tom Dumoulin was second with Czech Jan Barta
third at 1:47, ahead of Nibali who was fourth at 1:58.

It was Martin’s second stage win of the Tour and the third for his OPQS
team.

“I’m really happy, it was my day that’s true. The time trial is my
discipline.

“I didn’t expect to win the first stage so to be able to win two is great.

“I was well prepared for the time trial as yesterday (Friday) I kept
something back because I knew I would have to give everything the next day.”

The 29-year-old said he had felt the pressure of being the overwhelming
favourite but said he simply had a great day.

“That’s the hard part for me (being favourite) because it puts a lot of
pressure on my shoulders,” he said.

“I really had to handle this pressure but I’ve learnt in the past how to do
that.”

But it was the battle for podium places behind Nibali, who assured he will
wear the yellow jersey after Sunday’s final stage to Paris, that was most
gripping.

French riders Thibaut Pinot and Jean-Christophe Peraud and Spaniard
Alejandro Valverde had started the day separated by just 15sec ensuring the
fight for second and third place would be epic.

Yet Spanish time trial champion Valverde had an off day and faltered badly.

Peraud, the 2009 French champion against the clock, comfortably overhauled
his 13sec deficit to Pinot despite suffering a puncture along the way.

He had already turned his 13sec deficit into a 12sec lead by the first time
check after 19km.

But the 37-year-old punctured after 33km and at the second time check 6km
later he’d lost a couple of seconds.

But Peraud kept his focus and came home 44sec quicker than Pinot, 24, to
take second spot overall.

Pinot, who also claimed the white jersey for best young rider at the Tour,
was nonetheless delighted to finish third having been 10th at the Tour two
years ago.

“I was already happy with the white jersey but now a podium too is extra
special,” he said.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet. I have no regrets, three weeks ago I would never
have believed I could finish third so it’s just joy and bodes well for the
future.”

Pinot had widely been assumed to be weaker than Peraud and Valverde in the
time trial, which he said had helped take the pressure off him.

“I was confident from the start, I knew I was capable of putting in a good
time trial. I’ve been doing good time trials all season so there was no reason
not to expect to do a good one at the Tour de France.

“This morning was the stage in which I felt the least pressure. Everyone
thought I’d lost the podium so I could only create a surprise.

“There was no pressure and I felt relaxed.”

Peraud was so emotional at the end he could barely speak and quickly gave
up trying.
