Vincenzo Nibali: The Tour de France is not won yet

In spite of the fact that he put his closest rivals to the sword, won the toughest stage of the race so far and saw Alberto Contador crash in front of him. Vincenzo Nibali says he hasn’t won the Tour yet

“It was one of the hardest days I have spent on a bike, but I’m really happy with the way it went and with the way the team rode,” said Vincenzo Nibali, wearing the Tour de France leader's yellow jersey he had loaned out to Tony Gallopin of Lotto for a day.

“The team was great, all day and (Michele) Scarponi did an amazing job, even after his crash. He basically went into a corner way too fast and, although I was behind him, I could tell it was much too fast. But he still got back up and helped me. He was fantastic, but the crashes and weather made it hard today.”
