Tour de France: Dan Martin's late move moves him to fifth

He looks like an old man- shocking impact of Dan Martin's back injury

He looks like an old man- shocking impact of Dan Martin's back injury

Dutchman Bauke Mollema (Trek) won solo the 15th stage of the Tour de France on Sunday at le Puy-en-Velay.

Tour de France stage 15 will start at 6:25 AM ET and with the live television viewing in the United States by NBCSN which will begin the coverage at 8:00 AM ET. "I really thought that that could be the yellow jersey changing shoulders again". It has become a major talking point, with triple Tour champion Greg Le Mond saying the so-called unwritten rule should be scrapped.

"I'd like to think when we were controlling the race it was a bit calmer". I just can't handle guys who attack because their rival has had a problem.

"We saw today that Landa did not hesitate, he did the right thing, he stayed in the front", Brailsford said.

"It couldn't have come at a worst time". He thanked his teammates for their essential role in keeping him at the front, allowing him to pounce on the final climb while Aru was stuck.

Dan Martin may have crashed twice on one stage during the Tour de France but he could still finish on the podium, his uncle and former winner Stephen Roche believes.

With clouds overhead and a bit of chill in the air, Federer's early play, in general, was symptomatic of jitters. Baby steps and all that. Ag2r La Mondiale took the race to Sky with great vigour. He is also trying his hardest to switch off from the distractions of social media.

Meanwhile, Tour de France leader Fabio Aru's task in holding onto the yellow jersey suffered a blow on Friday as key team-mate Jakob Fuglsang quit the race.

As a result the QuickStep Floors rider overtook Mikel Landa (Team Sky) for fifth place, and also narrowed the gap to those in front.

"Maybe when they were younger, but now they are quite experienced, because otherwise you can go too hard too quickly and panic, and of course, you just explode".

The potential for a downpour was a constant concern leading up and lingered on drivers' minds right until the finish. We definitely had a string of bad luck so far this season, so to have something to kind of go our way was great.

And so it was that Federer, not Cilic, hit a double-fault in each of his first two service games.

In Mollema's wake came a peloton in tatters. Third is Lotto-Soudal's Thomas de Gendt, at 36 points, who is.

"That was extremely stressful, panic stations really".

Froome said the back-wheel problem seemed to be a broken spoke. Contador placed third. Testifying to the brevity and relentless racing action of the stage, Barguil covered the distance in just 2 1/2 hours, half the time of longer stages with twice as much road to cover.

But on the ramp in Rodez he turned his six secs deficit into an 18 secs lead over Italy's Fabio Aru who gave up the coveted maillot jaune with a whimper.

Yes, Federer is back to being supreme in tennis, lording over the sport the way no man has. "Someone skipped some change and he went away".

"It's perfect for us", Froome said.

The mathematics say it all: 10 teams have won stages, with Quickstep the biggest winners thanks to Marcel Kittel.

"The head is what guides you, but if the body doesn't respond, it doesn't respond", the dejected Colombian said.
