This is a day of considerable celebration for France. The young 22-year-old Thibaut Pinot won the 8th stage of the 2012 Tour de France, as he crossed the line first in Porrentruy, Switzerland. The race began in Belfort France and covered 157.5 kilometers (98.5 miles) of the rugged terrain of the Jura Mountains in eastern France. Naturally the coach and team members of the French AG2R La Mondiale team celebrate the victory of their teammate.
