Portuguese rider Rui Alberto Costa won the eighth stage of the Tour de France after withstanding a late attack from Philippe Gilbert on Saturday, while Thor Hushovd kept the leader's yellow jersey.
Philippe Gilbert won the first stage of the Tour de France on Saturday to take the yellow jersey, with defending champion Alberto Contador losing more than a minute because of a late crash.
Philippe Gilbert of Belgium, who won the opening stage Saturday, said "everyone was a bit out of breath" and that Hagen "devoured the last 150 meters; he's impossible to catch when he's like that."
"It was the last 500 meters, I had a lead ... (and) I went for it," Gilbert said. "It was an extreme effort and I was able to take advantage."
