Rafal Majka wins Tour de France stage 11

Rated Ascents:

The Race: Today was the second day in the Pyrenees, with six rated climbs scheduled, including two of the race’s legendary ascents, the Col d’Aspin and the Tourmalet. At 2,115 meters, the Tourmalet is the highest peak in the Pyrenees but not this year’s highest pass. That honor goes to the 2,250-meter high Col d’Allos in the Alps. This is the eighteenth time the Tour has ascended the Tourmalet and the first rider to the top of the legendary pass will earn the 5,000 Euro Souvenir Jacques Goddet prime. Here’s how Le Tour saw the day’s coming racing:

"French attacker Pierrick Fédrigo who already has four Tour de France stage wins under his belt, went away during the first Pyrenean stage but the second one definitely suits his characteristics better.

"Starting in Pau, the self-confessed 'capital of the Tour', for having hosted a stage on 66 occasions already (only Paris and Bordeaux have had more), stage 11 features two legendary climbs with the col d'Aspin and the Tourmalet prior to the final ascent to Cauterets. It's a climbers' paradise but probably more suitable for one of them who is quite far down on GC and will take place in a breakaway on the flat part of the race.

"Chris Froome has knocked his rivals out in such a significant way that they might wait for a while before they find the resources to hit back. The likes of Jean-Christophe Péraud, Romain Bardet and Thibaut Pinot, who all missed out on Bastille Day [stage 10] have some freedom to target a stage victory now, but a second mountain stage isn't only about the will, it's more about the legs."

La Gazzetta dello Sport reported an interesting change at the Astana team. Vincenzo Nibali, winner of this year’s Giro d’Italia and originally the team’s protected leader, no longer has that status. The team will now work for Jakob Fuglsang, even though Fuglsang is behind Nibali in the GC.

The 188 kilometer stage started at 11:45 AM. Richie Porte was wearing the Polka-dot climber’s jersey. Though Froome leads the category, he’s already got the Yellow Jersey, so the honor of wearing the jersey moves to the competition’s second-place rider.

All 183 riders who finished yesterday’s stage started today.

Only a few kilometers into the stage, four riders were off the front, Lieuwe Westra (Astana) who initiated the breakaway, Michal Kwiatkowski (Etixx), Bob Jungels (Trek) and Edvald Boasson Hagen. Cannondale-Garmin led the peloton and kept the quartet’s lead from getting larger than forty seconds. By the time the race reached the day’s first climb, the Côte de Loucrup, the escapees had been caught.

The intermediate sprint came shortly after the Loucrup, which had caused a split in the peloton. Green Jersey holder André was in the second group, so Peter Sagan’s second-place in the sprint made him the virtual green Jersey owner.

After the day’s third climb, the Côte de Mauvezin (interestingly, the first rider over the summit was former KOM Daniel Teklehaimanot), a group of seven rode away from a disinterested pack: Thomas Voeckler (Europcar), Rafal Majka (Tinkoff-Saxo), Serge Pauwels (MTN-Qhubeka), Steve Morabito and Arnaud Démare (FDJ), Julien Simon (Cofidis) and Emmanuel Buchmann (Bora-Argon 18). Ninety kilometers into the stage the escapees were four minutes ahead of the field as they headed for the first-category Col d'Aspin.

After crashing, Tinkoff-Saxo rider Daniele Bennati abandoned, the second rider, after Dominic Nerz (Bora-Argon 18), to quit the Tour today.    

Chasing the seven breakaways were Dan Martin (Cannondale-Garmin) and Andriy Grivko (Astana). Martin, a good climber, dropped Grivko and on the beginnings of the slopes of the Aspin, caught the break as Démare was dropped by the group.

The Aspin was tough on a couple of riders. Romain Bardet, suffering from heatstroke, threw up. Johan Vansummeren, who crashed in stage two and never really recovered, abandoned.

Dan Martin knew what he was doing when he scrambled up to the break. He was first to the top of the Aspin, while the peloton, dragged along by Sky, was more than seven minutes back.

The giant Tourmalet was the next obstacle. As the riders hit the imposing climb, Rafal Majka powered away from the break, while the Yellow Jersey group was quickly down to thirty riders. As the climb started to bite, more riders abandoned: Ben Gastauer, Rein Taaramae and Rui Costa.

Near the top of the Tourmalet, Majka was still alone and off the front, chased by the remnants of the break. The Yellow Jersey group was five minutes behind Majka and down to fourteen riders: Nibali, Kangert (Astana), Froome, Porte and Thomas (Sky), Contador (Tinkoff), Quintana and Valverde (Movistar), Van Garderen and Sanchez (BMC), Gallopin (Lotto), Rolland (Europcar), Gesink (Lotto-Jumbo), Mollema (Trek).

Majka crested the Tourmalet first, grabbing a slug of KOM points as well as the 5,000 Euro Jacques Goddet prize. Nice work if you can get it and are a gifted climber (Majka was the final holder of the polka-dot jersey last year.). More than five minutes later, Chris Froome was the first of his group to crest the Tourmalet. Clearly Froome wasn’t suffering from the previous day’s racing. Now there were thirty kilometers of racing left with the third-category Côte de Cauterets the final challenge.

Majka sped down the Tourmalet, a minute and a half in front of his nearest chaser, Serge Pauwels and five and a half minutes ahead of the Yellow Jersey group.

With ten kilometers left, Majka was still seventy seconds ahead of Pauwels and more than six minutes in front of a seemingly disinterested peloton, now led by Richie Porte.

Bam! Five kilometers before the finish and on the final climb, Dan Martin left the break and started hunting down Pauwels. Martin started too late to catch Majka, but with a kilometer of climbing left, he passed Pauwels. After the Cauterets, there were still three and a half kilometers to go before the finish.

Back in the Yellow Jersey group, Nibali was in difficulty.

Rafal Majka prevailed to win the prestigious eleventh stage. Martin came in just about a minute later and Bora-Argon 18 rider Emanuel Buchman, who had also passed Pauwels, finished third, while Pauwels was fourth.

Froome finished safely to retain the Yellow Jersey, his group 5min 21sec behind Majka. Nibali had another bad day, finishing a half-minute behind the Froome group.
