Topic - Christophe Riblon
Riblon caught American Tejay van Garderen near the end of the final climb to win the 18th stage of the Tour de France, while Chris Froome extended his overall lead despite a late struggle.
Costa secured the second stage win of his Tour career, crossing the line about 40 seconds ahead of Frenchman Christophe Riblon.
"A Frenchman winning on L'Alpe d'Huez is a beautiful recompense for France and for the Tour de France. We, the French, France, our team, didn't deserve to come out of this Tour de France without a stage victory," said Riblon.
"It was as if the crowds were carrying me. Magical," Riblon said. "The last kilometer (half-mile) wasn't long enough. I so would have liked to have profited more from that moment with the crowds. It was incredible. I would have liked for it to go on for 10 kilometers (six miles) like that."
