Tour de France 2018 - Geraint Thomas wins Stage 11, takes yellow jersey

Booed, spat at, jostled and jeered, Geraint Thomas emerged from the cauldron of hate on Alpe d'Huez to increase his overall lead in the Tour de France after another chaotic finale in the Alps.

Froome passed long-time leader Steven Kruijswik with 3.5km of the 175km stage to go.

"Just boo, be vocal, that's fine, but just don't affect the race", Thomas added. Hopefully I can enjoy being in yellow tomorrow because it was hard to enjoy it today - the race was too hard.

The sport paid for that unlimited access Thursday when unruly spectators interrupted the most iconic climb of the Tour de France. The overall standings are sure to change.

Eurosport is the home of the Tour de France.

Team Bahrain rider Nibali, who claimed the yellow jersey in 2014, was taken to hospital with a suspected vertebra fracture after falling heavily on the final climb.

Van Avermaet impressed with his pace in the climbs during Tuesday's stage, but was unable to repeat his performance.

The Ptolemaic dynasty famously ended with Cleopatra's suicide during the Roman conquest of Greece and Egypt around 30 B.C. After the sarcophagus was opened, it was transferred to Alexandria National Museum for conservation and further study.

Thomas moved into the lead of the famous race yesterday as Team Sky dominated Stage 11 to La Rosiere.

"Even as I crossed the line, it was, 'Surely there is someone still up the road, '" he said. "It's one of those things that's going to stay with me for the rest of my life".

Thomas dons the yellow jersey for a second straight Tour. The 2008 and 2012 Olympic track cycling gold medalist won the opening time trial in 2017 and wore the maillot jaune four days before Froome took over en route to his fourth title in Paris.

"Daredevil jumps over Tour de France peleton on BMX in insane stunt on stage 10 into the Alps Prankster flies above the riders on a narrow stretch of road, narrowly avoiding taking anyone out".

"Whatever happens now is bonus", Thomas said. "Froomey's won six Grand Tours". He knows how to race for three weeks.

"I knew it was a good chance to get the yellow jersey but I didn't know how everyone else was going to ride, so to wear the jersey is always a massive honour", said the 32-year-old.
