He becomes the first Quebec cyclist in history to win a stage in the Tour de France and the first Canadian since Steve Bauer in 1988.

A member of the initial breakaway of 29 riders, Houle managed to escape alone with around 40 kilometers to go. On his heels, the American Matteo Jorgenson tried to come back on him, but the Canadian Michael Woods watched him closely.

Jorgenson finally crashed before getting back in the saddle.

At the finish line, Houle pointed to the sky to greet his brother who died in December 2012.

Woods took third place on the stage.
