Tour glory for Bardet

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

RO­MAIN Bardet has taken his first vic­tory at the Tour de France with a solo break­away on the 18th stage from Gap to Saint Jean de Mau­ri­enne. Yesterday’s win was only the sec­ond home vic­tory at the Tour this year and also a sec­ond for 24- yearold Bardet’s AG2R team. Com­pa­triot Pierre Rol­land was sec­ond with Win­ner Ana­cona, of Colom­bia, in third at the end of the sec­ond of four Alpine stages. Chris Froome still has the yel­low jersey.
