Thus, he won his third stage win in the Tour de France and in his career as a cyclist, revealing today it is the best in his career.

After the Tour de France 2011 Stage 18 results had been officially announced, it was clear that Thomas Voeckler will keep the yellow jersey for the next stage in the tournament despite the fact that he finished only fourth in stage 18. Voeckler was on the brink of collapse after the finish with his face showing clear signs of physical pain.

Stage 19 features more climbing which are big disadvantageous for Voeckler who still wears the yellow jersey as leader in the overall standing in spite of all the comments that he would not be able to keep the lead.
