Tour de France
Stage 11: Albertville to La Rosière Espace San Bernardo - Stage Details

Giro d’Italia stage winner Mikel Nieve came agonisingly close to another Grand Tour stage victory in his debut season with Mitchelton-SCOTT only to be caught in the final 200metres on stage 11 of the Tour de France.

The 34-year-old was part of a large breakaway that formed in the opening kilometres and led the race solo for the majority of the final 10kilometres. The road proved a few hundred metres too far and Nieve had to settle for fifth place behind Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) who claimed the stage to move into the race lead.
