#WEW1N - MADE IN RACING

Further stamping his dominance on the race, Vincenzo Nibali took victory atop the Hautacam in a stunning solo victory on stage 18. As the Tour wound its way through the Pyrenees one last time, Nibali broke free alone putting even more time into his rivals on the 145.5km stage. Finishing third on the day and securing the polka dot jersey was Tinkoff-Saxo phenom Rafal Majka.

On a day that saw the riders climb both the Tourmalet and Hautacam, the obvious bike choice was always going to be the new Rider-First Engineered S-Works Tarmac. With its complete and uncompromising performance it was the perfect weapon to tackle not just the assaulting climbs, but the twisting descents as well. Keeping Nibali cool and focused was his custom-liveried S-Works Prevail helmet.

As the last mountain stage of the Tour, stage 18 gave Vincenzo the opportunity to demonstrate his continued dominance of the r ace as well as carrying the added bonus of gaining even more time on his rivals. With just a few flat stages and the time trial left, Team Astana will need to stay focused and vigilant in their quest to deliver Vincenzo to the line in Paris in yellow.
