Tour de France. Stage 18. Alexey Lutsenko takes third place in Valloire
The third place for Alexey Lutsenko today on stage 18 of the Tour de France. The Kazakh champion was part of the day’s breakaway of 34 riders, including teammate Gorka Izagirre. The HC categorized climbs Col d’Izoard and the Galibier reduced this group until Lutsenko attacked on the final climb of the day. Nairo Quintana countered the attack, as he went solo for the stage victory. Lutsenko chased Quintana together with Romain Bardet, but the Colombian rider was the strongest rider of the day. Behind Quintana, Bardet finished second and Lutsenko third.
