Getting closer to Paris

ARGELES-GAZOST, France (AP) - Italy's Vincenzo Nibali has seemingly all but wrapped up the Tour de France with his win in the 90-mile 18th stage.

Barring a disastrous finish, Nibali will probably be wearing the yellow jersey, symbolic of being the overall race leader, on Sunday in Paris when the three-week competition comes to an end.

His victory essentially turned the race into a competition for second as he has a lead of more than seven minutes.
