Thibaut Pinot (FDJ-BigMat) pulled off a daring escape to win Stage 8 of the Tour de France in his debut in the grand boucle. General classification hope Cadel Evans (BMC) was second while Tony Gallopin (RadioShack-Nissan) was third with an ever-watchful Bradley Wiggins (Sky) retained the yellow jersey in fourth place.

The top 10 is set for a further shake-up on Monday’s 41.5km individual time trial where Wiggins is tipped to increase his lead over Evans.
