Dion Smith set to continue in Tour de France

Richie Porte of BMC Racing, however, has been discharged from hospital after his crash today and the diagnosis is that he has a non-displaced right clavicle fracture.

After Dutch rider Dylan Groenewegen doubled up at the Tour de France with his second win in as many days, the Race organisers announced that Greipel and Gaviria, who originally finished third and fourth, had been relegated for irregular sprinting after clashing in the final hundred metres.

Four-time victor Chris Froome crashed but recovered to finish with the other main general classification contenders.

Thomas started the day a minute ahead of his nominative captain Froome, who eventually struggled back to the lead pack on his own.

Jul 15 2018 04:31 pm CET John Degenkolb of Trek-Segafredo confirmed that he is far from done with a brilliant victory at the much anticipated Tour de France stage to Roubaix.

Amazon's website crashes right as its Prime Day began
Stepping back to the second quarter of 2017, ecommerce had 14.6% YoY growth in the US , with a major spike around Memorial Day. July 17 was the biggest sales day for smart home devices in Amazon history, with over a million devices sold.

"I was watching everything and I just waited for my chance", said the stocky Amsterdam native who on Friday put a finger to his lips to silence his detractors at the line but on Saturday put up two fingers, which he said was for two, and for peace.

The main group would cross 27 seconds behind the winners, with Landa and France hope Romain Bardet ending seven seconds back.

The incident almost saw Degenkolb, the 2015 victor of Paris-Roubaix, lose a finger.

Thomas showed his climbing prowess, finishing 20 seconds ahead of 2017 Giro d'Italia champion Tom Dumoulin and Froome.

Degenkolb was always the more likely of the trio to win the stage due to his sprinting skills while the Belgian Van Avermaet was keen to take his yellow jersey into the mountains next week.

Will the Trump baby balloon fly over Parliament Square tomorrow?
Mr Trump and his wife Melania arrived at Stansted airport, where he was met by the UK's worldwide trade secretary Liam Fox. In London , we speak with Sheila Menon, social justice activist and one of the organizers behind the Trump baby blimp .

Degenkolb became the third rider to win both Paris-Roubaix and a cobbled stage at the Tour after Roger De Vlaeminck and Bernard Hinault. "That is the hardest part to don't lose the trust in yourself and that you can still be up there".

"A lot of people didn't believe in me anymore and thought I wouldn't come back to the same level anymore". It's a stage where you go all out.

Those cobblestones lie on Sunday's mini-version of Paris-Roubaix, a race popularly known as "the Hell of the North".

The riders now face a long transfer to Annecy, but have Monday's rest day before the race moves into the Alps and the true battle for yellow emerges, albeit without one of its biggest likely protagonists in Porte.
