    It’s looking inevitable at this point that 2014 will see Italian Vincenzo Nibali take the Tour de France crown. Going into Thursday’s 145.5km Stage 18 in the Pyrénées, “The Shark” had already compiled a multi-minute lead. Proving once again that he is the best climber in the field, he rode to yet another solo stage victory in the mountains to further increase his lead in the General Classification standings. Nibali now leads the two Frenchmen in second and third place by over seven minutes going into the final weekend of this year’s Tour.
