Tour glory for Bardet
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.
