Tour de France: Christophe Riblon takes the Double Huez for France as Froome shows his fallibility

Frenchman takes the host nations first stage while the Maillot Jaune cracks on the Alpe

Christophe RiblonChristophe Riblon (AG2R La Mondiale) took the long awaited first victory for the host nation in the 2013 Tour de France, between Gap and Alpe d’Huez, as the race took on the iconic hairpinned climb twice. The Frenchman was one of just three survivors from a group of nine riders that had escaped in the early kilometres of the 172.5km stage, managing to chase down Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) with just two kilometres to go, after the American had attacked earlier in the climb.

Moreno Moser (Cannondale) managed to hold off the chase of the race’s big names to take third place.

Behind the breakaway the teams of the overall contenders attacked one another, with Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) put into difficultly by Team Sky and Movistar. With around five kilometres to climb, however, Maillot Jaune Chris Froome (Team Sky) cracked, and was unable to follow white jersey Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Joaquim Rodríguez (Katusha) as the pair of them escaped.

By the finish Froome - who was nursed up the remainder of the climb by teammate Richie Porte - had lost 1’08” to Quintana, but had still taken time out of the rest of his immediate rivals, and had increased his lead over Contador to 5’11”, while Quintana moved up to third.

“When I was about eight years old, I saw on the TV a victory of a cyclist at Alpe d'Huez and I hoped that one day maybe I could do it too,” said Riblon afterwards. “Today, when I saw at the start of the climb that van Garderen attacked me I knew I couldn't follow him and I told myself, ‘Shit, I finish second like two days ago...' After, at three kilometres from the finish, I saw him and he didn't look good so I started to believe in my good stars. And I sprinted and the public supported me and I'm in the sky!

“It was a crazy final,” Riblon recalled. “At five kilometres to go, I no longer believed it was possible. But Julien Jurdie was in the car, and he still believed in me and never stopped encouraging me, saying, ‘He's bonked, you'll catch him!' At that time, I was riding for second place so I was giving it my all on the climb.

“Then, when I saw him ahead of me, I realised he had the very distinctive position of a rider who is not coping,” he continued. “So I came back up to him, and I absolutely did not want to leave him any hope that he could accompany me… I had no hesitation and I immediately attacked. It's a huge thrill to see the race reversed.”

Riblon, van Garderen and Moser escaped after just 17km, with Jens Voigt (RadioShack-Leopard), Arnold Jeannesson (FDJ.fr), Andrey Amador (Movistar), Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-Quick Step), Lars Boom (Belkin) and Tom Danielson (Garmin-Sharp), and managed to get more than eight minutes clear.

The three of them escaped the others on the first climb of Alpe d’Huez, with a counterattacking group of Andy Schleck (RadioShack-Leopard), Pierre Rolland (Europcar), Mikel Nieve (Euskaltel-Euskadi) and Wout Poels (Vacansoleil-DCM) breaking away from the peloton behind them. This counterattack was pulled back by Movistar on the approach to the second Alpe climb, however, but the leaders were still a long way clear.

Van Garderen attacked early in the climb, as he had done the first time around, and managed to get what looked like a stage-winning lead over Riblon, but the American faded rapidly in the final kilometres and the Frenchman managed to pull him back.

Nine get clear after an aggressive start and are given a lot of rope

Attacks began from the start, as the peloton almost immediately began the 2nd category Col de Manse, up the way that it descended to the finish two days before. Saxo-Tinkoff was active early on, but the nine-man group formed shortly after the climb; when they were more than six minutes clear, however, at the foot of the 3rd category Rampe du Motty, Saxo-Tinkoff’s Sergio Paulinho and Nicolas Roche escaped in pursuit.

Over the top of the 2nd category Col d’Ornon, with 95km to go, the group was eight minutes ahead of the peloton, with Roche and Paulinho at six minutes. Boom took the points at the intermediate sprint in Bourg d’Oisans after 108km, and they hit the Alpe for the first of the two climbs shortly afterwards.

With 60km to go, van Garderen accelerated and pulled away from the others. Riblon and Moser chased separately, and managed to keep the American in sight.

Roche and Paulinho were both picked up by the peloton but, with 53km to go Thomas Voeckler (Europcar) attacked, and Team Sky watched him go as Laurent Didier (RadioShack-Leopard) and Poels followed him. Rolland was quickly up to his teammate, and the foursome continued to open up its gap over the peloton.

Mikel Nieve (Euskaltel-Euskadi) - wearing the polka dot jersey in lieu of classification leader Froome - was the next to go, and quickly caught the group and, shortly afterwards, Schleck also jumped away and was paced onto the group by Didier who dropped back. Once up with the counterattack, Schleck hit the front, which got rid of Voeckler.

Riblon, van Garderen and Moser came together just before the top, with the Italian taking the maximum points. The Schleck/Rolland group was 7’20” behind as they followed over - with Nieve taking the remaining two points - as the three leaders were just arriving at the foot of the 2nd category Col de Sarenne. The peloton, still calmly led by Team Sky, was another minute behind.

As the climb steepened in the final kilometre, Moser was unable to follow the other two, and he was 12 seconds behind them over the top, with 41km to go, as he was joined by Voigt.

On the technical descent van Garderen’s chain came off as he rode over a bump, and Riblon rode clear of him. He was soon passed by a speeding Moser as he was forced to stop and fix his bike, and the Italian was soon back up with Riblon.

The chasing group of four was right on the heels of Chavanel as it arrived at the top 6’13” behind the leaders. Riblon was following Moser down the technical descent and, as he hit a damp corner, was unable to get around and was forced to go straight on. Thankfully he was able to stay upright as he crossed the flooded ditch beside the road, and was soon back on his bike.

The rain that threatened makes a brief appearance as the three fugitives hold off the peloton

It was now beginning to rain a little, as the peloton topped the climb at 7’45”. Froome was now just led by Kennaugh and Porte, but Contador flew past the Sky riders and began to attack the descent. Kreuziger followed his team leader and the two Saxo-Tinkoff riders tried to open up their lead, while Kennaugh tried to calmly keep them under control.

Moser was soon rejoined by Riblon, with van Garderen still chasing, and the American was back up to the two leaders with just over 17km to go.

Contador and Kreuziger passed Amador, who had dropped back from the original break, and the Costa Rican rider began to work on the front as the Movistar team began to chase. Realising this, the two Saxo-Tinkoff riders sat up at the 25km banner, and were soon back in the peloton.

Having been caught, Contador then went back to his team car to change his bike as the Movistar team continued to set its fierce pace.

Moser, Riblon and van Garderen were together as they began the final 13.8km climb to the finish, with the Schleck/Rolland group at 6’31” and the peloton at 7’21”. Riblon immediately accelerated, however, which saw Moser quickly distanced as he had been on the previous climb.

Movistar was still setting its pace, and was soon up with the counterattacking group, with Schleck, Nieve and Chavanel giving up quickly, and Rolland and Poels soon afterwards. More raindrops were falling now, but the peloton was almost at the foot of the Alpe.

Moser was trying to keep van Garderen and Riblon in sight, but was gradually being reeled in by Voigt, who had been riding alone since the first climb of the Alpe. As Movistar led the peloton at high speed, across the Bourg d’Oisans bridge and on to the foot of the climb, they were just 5’25” behind the leaders.

With just over 12km to go van Garderen accelerated a little earlier than he had the previous time and left Riblon behind again. The peloton’s speed dropped as it began the climb, however, with Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and Jose Serpa (Lampre-Merida) pulling clear.

Team Sky looks strong but Froome looks fallible as Movistar piles on the pressure

Porte took over the pace, but Froome was struggling to hold the Australian’s wheel. The pace was also proving too much for Bauke Mollema (Belkin), who was out the back of the peloton with Schleck and Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Merida), and being nursed up by his team.

With 11km to go Froome attacked, and was quickly up to Antón, Valverde and Serpa, but the rest of the favourites were able to follow. Porte then took over again, and the Maillot Jaune group was reduced to just Froome and Porte (Team Sky), Quintana and Valverde (Movistar), Joaquim Rodríguez and Dani Moreno (Katusha) and Contador.

Froome attacked the group again and, once the Maillot Jaune had got a few metres clear, Quintana jumped across. Moreno and Rodríguez then gave chase, but Contador was unable to respond. Rodríguez made it up to Froome and Quintana just as they passed under the ten kilometre banner, 4’20” behind van Garderen; informed by Porte that his biggest rival was in trouble, Froome continued to accelerate.

Quintana then attacked himself, and Froome was just able to respond with Rodríguez on his wheel. Shortly afterwards Valverde and Porte attacked and rode away from Contador; up ahead Froome was gesticulating with Rodríguez, and was almost knocked over by a small boy who didn’t appear to realise he was there.

Rather than work, however, Rodríguez attacked, and it was Quintana that gave chase. Froome struggled to hold on to the Colombian’s wheel for a few moments, but Quintana kicked again and began put the Maillot Jaune into difficulty, but they managed to claw their way back up to Rodríguez and were soon rejoined by Porte as they passed Voigt.

Porte then hit the front, but Froome was unable to follow his pace and called for him to slow down. The group was now just 3’35” behind van Garderen, who was approaching the final five kilometres, while Riblon was still 35 seconds behind the American up front.

Contador was now in the company of Kreuziger, and more than a minute behind Froome’s group, but the Czech was working hard to close the gap.

Suddenly Froome’s hand went up as he tried to get some food of his team car but he was unable to get anything and, shortly afterwards Quintana attacked. Porte handed him something that he had gone back for - incurring a 20-second penalty - but the Colombian was flying clear up ahead by now with just four kilometres to go. Now suffering from hunger knock, Froome was unable to chase.

Van Garderen was now suffering as he was approaching the three kilometre banner and Riblon was reeling him in. Under the banner the American’s lead was just 22 seconds, with Riblon visibly climbing faster, and he was soon in sight. The Frenchman caught up with two kilometres to go and immediately accelerated past.

Quintana was 2’30” behind Riblon, with Froome 32 seconds behind the Colombian, while Contador was still at 4’15” and barely closing.

Riblon sprinted out of the saddle under the flamme rouge, with van Garderen now 22 seconds behind him, and kept his pace going as the road began to level out. Punching the air inside the final, flat 500 metres, he kissed his medallion before sitting up, blowing a kiss and punching the air with both hands.

Van Garderen took a disappointed second place, 59 seconds back, with Mose holding on for third at 1’27”. Quintana managed to outsprint Rodríguez for fourth place at 2’12”, which was 1’06” ahead of Porte and Froome, who came in after 3’18”.
