Tony Gallopin of France on Wednesday won the 11th stage of the Tour de France, two days after wearing the yellow jersey on Bastille Day.

The 26-year-old escaped from a depleted peloton on a fast descent in the last 10 kilometres of the 187.5 kilometre run from Besançon to Oyonnax.

Although he was caught by a trio of chasers, he attacked them in the final 3 kilometres and held on for victory ahead of John Degenkolb and Matteo Trentin.

Italian Vincenzo Nibali finished safely in the chasing pack and held onto the leader's yellow jersey.
