Highlights: Quintana Climbs To Stage 18 Victory

Colombia’s Nairo Quintana claimed his third stage win at the Tour de France after stage 20 to Annecy-Semnoz in 2013 and stage 17 to col du Portet last year as he rode away solo from a long lasting breakaway 7.5km before the col du Galibier. The other successful attack in the mythical climb enabled his compatriot Egan Bernal to move to second overall behind Julian Alaphilippe who defended the yellow jersey once again.
