Contador wins overall title at Route du Sud

Alberto Contador sealed overall victory at the Route du Sud - his last race before the Tour de France, after being carefully protected by his Tinkoff-Saxo teammates during the fourth and final stage of the French stage race.

Bryan Coquard (Europcar) won the rolling 166km stage from Revel to Gaillac after a late chase caught the break of the day inside the final three kilometres. He comfortably beat Lorenzo Manzin (FDJ) and Leonardo Duque (Cofidis) to win his second stage of this year’s race after an excellent lead out from his teammates.

Contador finished safely in the peloton and so pulled on the final orange race leader’s jersey, adding a morale-boosting win to his palmares as he recovers from the efforts of winning the Giro d’Italia and prepares for the Tour de France. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) finished second overall at 17 seconds, with young French rider Pierre-Roger Latour (Ag2r La Mondiale) third at 41 seconds.

Contador set up his overall victory by winning the mountain stage to Bagneres-de-Luchon on Saturday. He broke away with Quintana and Latour on the Port de Balès climb and then managed to go clear alone on the high-speed descent to the finish.

Earlier stages were won by Steven Tronet (Auber 93) and Coquard.
