Tour de France
Stage 7: L'Isle-Jourdain to Lac de Payolle - Stage Details

South African Daryl Impey rounded off a great ride in the breakaway on stage seven of the Tour de France today, sprinting to second place for ORICA-BikeExchange as the race hit the Pyrenees.

A solo attack by Stephen Cummings (Dimension-Data) won the stage as Impey more than held his own against the likes of Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) on the first category Col d’Aspin before sprinting past Dani Navarro (Cofidis) for second place.

“I really surprised myself on the climb, I think I went better than expected and I am chuffed with that,” said a happy Impey after the stage.
