Bradley Wiggins further extended his overall lead in the Tour de France as Pierre Roland won the 11th stage in La Toussuire.
It was another fantastic day for British riders as Team Sky's Chris Froome finished in third place and has now moved up to second overall after defending champion Cadel Evan lost time on the mountain-top climb.
Rolland was the standout rider as he came home a nearly a minute ahead of French compatriot Thibaut Pinot.
Wiggins finished in sixth place and now leads his Team Sky team-mate Froome by 2.05 with Vencenzo Nibalu now third and a further 28 seconds behind.
Wiggins became the first Brit to wear the yellow jersey for four days on the trot as he beat the previous best set by Chris Boardman and it now seems as though he is set to win the Tour.
He has more than two minute lead and he believes it should come as a shock to no-one that he is in with a chance to winning and blasted anyone that questions that he has managed this while staying clear of drugs.
"It's not like I've just come from nowhere," Wiggins said. "I've been three times Olympic champion on the track; people have to realise what kind of engine you need to win an Olympic gold medal as an individual pursuiter.
"I've been six times world champion, fourth in the Tour de France, third in the Vuelta last year. "I'm tested by the UCI (International Cycling Union) God knows how many times a year, God knows how many times on this race and the Dauphine.
"What more can I do? Other than that? I don't know."
