Barguil takes Bastille Day win in Foix

The last time a Fenchman won on Bastile Day was 2005 when David Moncoutie won in Digne so with three stage wins to France so far this Tour French hopes of a break to the drought were not unreasonable. On the tour's shortest stage it was Barguil who launche the first of the day's attacks but was quickly reeled in. Next to go were Sylvain Chavanel (Direct Energie), Alessandro De Marchi (BMC) and Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors). Half way into the ascent to col de Latrape with 73km to go it was De Marchi alone in lead.

Behind him Barguil launched an attack to gain the maximum remaining KOM points, precipitating the day's decisive move by Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) and Mikel Landa (Sky). Behind them Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky), Alexis Vuillermoz (AG2R-La Mondiale) together with Barguil went on a counter offencsive to bridge the gap.

The remainder of the race was high speed action. Quintana and Barguil manageed to connect with Contador and Landa. Benind them Chris Froome (Sky) sparrd with his rival racve leader Fabio Aru. Next to join hte leaders was Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac).

With the stage nearing its climax Contnador struck for home with 400m to go. Barguil who had bene in the hunt all day was quick to respond and timed his sprint perfectly.

Aru and Froome arrived 1'48" down but preserved theoire GC standings as did Romain Bardet and Uran but below them the GC underwent a subtle rejig with Landa climbin to fifth spit up from seventh with Contandor back in the top 10 in tenth.
