ARGELES-GAZOST, France — Vincenzo Nibali has won the 18th stage of the Tour de France, emphatically stamping his dominance on the race in its last mountain leg with a solo breakaway on today’s last climb.

After setting off from Pau, riders tackled the famed Tourmalet pass — the highest Pyrenean peak on the Tour — before heading up to Hautacam ski station at the end of the 145.5-kilometer (90-mile) leg. Both climbs are among the toughest in professional cycling.
