Young Pole Rafal Majka climbed to his second mountain stage victory of the Tour de France on Wednesday.

Having already triumphed in the Alps, the Tinkoff-Saxo rider added a Pyrenean stage to his ledger with victory on the 124.5km 17th stage from Saint-Gaudens to Saint-Lary.

Italian Giovanni Visconti was second with race leader Vincenzo Nibali taking third as he extended his overall advantage to Spaniard Alejandro Valverde to almost 5min 30sec.
