Description

In the Tour de France Stage 7 of 1995, Johan Bruyneel (who was in the breakaway) attacked during this stage on the Mont Theux, followed by Miguel Indurain (who was in the peloton). They came together at the top of the Mont-Theux. During the next 25km Indurain did all the work, creating a margin of almost one minute, and Bruyneel only followed him, but beat Indurain in the sprint, winning the stage and becoming the new leader. Eventually Indurain won the Tour de France 1995.
