CHAMROUSSE, France, July 18, 2014 (AFP) – Vincenzo Nibali continued to
stamp his mark on the 2014 Tour de France with his third stage victory on
Friday to increase his overall lead to more than three minutes.

The Italian champion proved too strong once again for his rivals as he rode
away from the field on the final climb to Chamrousse on the 197.5km 13th stage
from Saint-Etienne.

Reigning champion Chris Froome and two-time winner Alberto Contador may
have crashed out of this Tour already but Nibali said he would have been
difficult to beat regardless of their misfortunes.

“I think I’m in the best form of anyone in the Tour,” he said. “I’m sorry
we don’t have the duel we hoped for with Froome and Alberto but I got here in
great form to be very competitive and my level is very high.”

Australian Richie Porte totally cracked on a scorching hot day in the Alps
and came home almost nine minutes behind the Astana leader to drop from second
to 16th overall.

Only Spaniard Alejandro Valverde and Frenchman Thibaut Pinot of the
contenders could offer any hint of resistance but still came home 50sec and
53sec respectively behind the winner.

Valverde moved up to second but is now 3:37 behind while Pinot, 24, is up
to fourth at 4:40.

Romain Bardet, 23, climbed onto the podium as he came home 1:23 behind
Nibali to keep hold of the young rider’s white jersey by just 16sec ahead of
French compatriot Pinot.

But the day was all about Nibali, who showed he doesn’t need his team
around him as he is simply the strongest rider at the Tour.

Chief lieutenant Jakob Fuglsang had crashed on the descent between the
first category Col de Palaquit and the final uncategorised ascent to
Chamrousse, while Michele Scaproni was having an off day.

Once Tanel Kangert pulled over before the final 10km, Nibali was shorn of
support.

Valverde attacked inside the final 10km but Nibali responded, with Pinot
tucking in behind the Italian.

Nibali then launched his own move 6.6km from home and this time Valverde
couldn’t respond.

The Sicilian caught Konig and Majka and the three cooperated until Nibali
kicked for home with 3km left.

The Astana leader said he hadn’t planned to ride away to a stage victory
but once he saw Porte struggling he had concentrated on trying to break
Valverde.

“It was very hot but the more you climbed the better it got. Still the heat
is the same for everybody,” said the 2010 Vuelta a Espana winner and 2013 Giro
d’Italia champion.

“I saw Porte had dropped off already, perhaps because of the heat, so my
aim was to gain time on Valverde.

“I accelerated to get up to the two leaders and we were collaborating
because we knew there was a long way to go to the finish and tomorrow
(Saturday) will be a tough day.

“But there wasn’t great collaboration and I saw that Valverde and Pinot
were coming back up to us so I upped the tempo and with that came the victory
too.”

With Froome out of the race and Porte now out of contention, Team Sky
manager Dave Brailsford said they would have to target stage wins.

“Let’s see how the next few days go, we can look to animate the race as
much as we can and let’s go from there,” he said.

“He (Porte) is disappointed and when you’re disappointed it’s not the time
to start analysing anything, just support the lad.

“It was just a question then of minimising his losses and keep on going.”

The day had begun with a nine man breakaway before stage eight winner Blel
Kadri attacked on the penultimate climb.

Jan Bakelants followed him but both were passed by Alessandro De Marchi.

However, despite opening a gap of almost 4min on the peloton, the Italian
was quickly reeled in on the final climb, after which Konig went clear,
followed by Majka.

But neither could match Nibali’s final burst.
