Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : July 23rd 2014 Contents BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON---Riding
in his tenth Tour de France, three-
time world champion Michael
Rogers of Australia finally got his
first stage victory in cycling s
greatest race yesterday by leading
a breakaway group to a downhill
finish as the pack entered the
Italy s Vincenzo Nibali, finishing
about 8 1/2 minutes back, reined
in his top challengers and retained
the yellow jersey after Stage 16,
the longest stage of this year s race
and the first of three days in the
mountains on France s border with
Behind the Italian, the contest
for podium places was shaken up:
Thibaut Pinot of France rose to third
in the standings, while compatriot
Romain Bardet dropped to fifth.
Tejay van Garderen of the United
States lost more than 3 1/2 minutes,
slipping from fifth to sixth and
seeing his podium hopes dealt a
Rogers took a bow as he crossed
the line alone after the 237.5-kilo-
metre (147-mile) leg from Carcas-
sonne to Bagneres-de-Luchon,
which featured a tough climb up the
mountain pass of Port de Bales.
"Every cyclist s dream is to win a
stage at the Tour de France," said
Rogers, who finished nine seconds
ahead of France s Thomas Voeckler
who had won two previous Tour
stages at Bagneres-de-Luchon in
2010 and 2012. "I can t describe the
joy I felt in the last 500 metres ...
I hope I don t have to wait another
ten years to experience it again."
Rogers came close not to riding
on this Tour for the Tinkoff-Saxo
In a ruling announced in April,
the International Cycling Union
accepted that meat Rogers ate in
China last year probably caused
his positive doping test at the Japan
Cup shortly afterward. Rogers, a
crucial teammate of two-time Tour
champion Alberto Contador, con-
vinced the UCI that he hadn t
intended to cheat, and said the
episode was "a very difficult time"
for his family.
As the day began, a breakaway
group of 21 riders came together
over the first two hours and stuck
together for much of the day, chis-
eling out a lead of more than 12 min-
But their unity began to disinte-
grate along the 12-kilometre Port de
Bales climb, which is ranked Hors
Categorie because the ascent is so
tough that it s considered beyond
In its steepest patch, the gradient
reached 11 per cent. Rogers was in
a bunch of five riders that came
together in the final descent, and he
stepped on the accelerator with less
than 5 kilometres (3.2 miles) left.
Before the stage, the Lampre-
Merida team said world champion
Rui Costa of Portugal would not start
due to pneumonia. The Portuguese
rider had been in 13th place, about
13 minutes behind Nibali.
After Tuesday s ride, Nibali leads
second-place Alejandro Valverde of
Spain by 4 minutes, 37 seconds, and
Pinot is 5:06 back. French veteran
Jean-Christophe Peraud is fourth,
at 6:08, and Bardet is 6:40 behind.
Van Garderen, while only losing a
notch in the standings, is 9:25 behind
the race leader.
Stage 16 was just an appetiser for
the Pyrenees, with uphill finishes to
follow today and tomorrow.
