    Vincenzo Nibali won the Tour de France on Sunday, becoming the first Italian in 16 years to triumph in cycling’s greatest race by chiseling a lead over his main rivals a few seconds at a time and dominating them in the mountains.

  • With Nibali in command, Tour is about 2nd place Jul 25, 2014 5:31 PM
    Ramunas Navardauskas gave Lithuania and his American team a stage victory Friday at the Tour de France. Now cycling’s great showcase is reduced to this — the race for second place behind Vincenzo Nibali. The Italian, who has all but won the yellow jersey, cruised to the finish in Stage 19 in the rain-splattered pack behind the Lithuanian’s breakaway. Only a mishap of the highest order during Saturday’s time trial would deny Nibali victory in Paris on Sunday.

  • Playful Pole wins Tour stage, as Nibali marches on Jul 23, 2014 5:43 PM
    On the last of four Pyrenees ascents, Rafal Majka winked at a French TV camera and tugged playfully at a motorcycle’s antenna. Even this late in the Tour de France, the Polish rider made winning look easy as he took Stage 17 on Wednesday. For Vincenzo Nibali, the second ride in the mountains on France’s border with Spain was more serious. “The Shark” nibbled yet more seconds away from several of his closest challengers, and the yellow jersey that he’s worn for all but two days of this race seemed to fit just a little more tightly ahead of Sunday’s race finish in Paris.

     
  • Kristoff wins stage, Nibali keeps Tour de France lead Jul 20, 2014 6:21 PM
    Almost at the line, Jack Bauer and Martin Elmiger were exhausted but could see it coming — their first Tour de France stage victory. Those last 50 meters, however, got in the way. A bunch of sprinters leading the pack came speeding like a runaway train and plowed past the huffing breakaway duo in the final milliseconds. Stage 15 belonged to Norwegian speedster Alexander Kristoff, his second stage victory in this Tour.

  • In Alps, Nibali again dominates Tour de France Jul 18, 2014 5:07 PM
    If Vincenzo Nibali was looking happier Friday after the Tour de France rode into the Alps, here’s why: His top rival fell out of contention, he gained nearly a minute on his next-biggest challenger and oh, he won Stage 13 to boot. On a sunbaked and melting Alpine road, the 29-year-old Italian, cemented his control of cycling’s greatest race with a solo-finish victory that was an afterthought to gaining time on other title contenders.

     
  • Nibali defends yellow jersey on 12th stage of Tour Jul 17, 2014 10:41 AM
    BOURG-EN-BRESSE, France — Italian rider Vincenzo Nibali has a firm grip on the yellow jersey as the 12th stage of the Tour de France gets underway. Nibali holds a lead of 2 minutes, 23 seconds over Australian rider Richie Porte and 2:47 over Spaniard Alejandro Valverde heading into Thursday’s 185.5-kilometer (115.5-mile) trek from Bourg-en-Bresse to Saint-Etienne in southeastern France — a mostly flat route which favors sprinters. American rider Andrew Talansky did not take the start line Thursday after pulling out in the morning. He rode for several hours with excruciating back pain in Wednesday’s 11th stage, where he finished in last place. Nibali is looking to become the first Italian rider to win the showcase race since the late Marco Pantani in 1998.

As the sport went prime-time and grew more competitive and lucrative, the crackdown on doping cheats also intensified. Here are five things to know about doping before the race starts on Saturday.
