Matthews wins Stage 16 in Tour, Froome keeps yellow jersey

Matthews wins Stage 16 in Tour, Froome keeps yellow jersey

"I'm just happy to get through today's stage", said Froome, adding he was looking forward to the race reaching the Alps.

Also, we sit down with American rider Taylor Phinney (Cannondale-Drapac) to hear his thoughts on life in the peloton.

Irishman Dan Martin was one of the highest profile losers of the stage.

It proved a hugely profitable day for Matthews, who cut his deficit in the points classification from 79 to 29 as Marcel Kittel struggled in the green jersey, finishing in a group more than 16 minutes behind the leaders.

A source close to the Kardashians and Jenners said: "The family was horrified at the entire thing". She admitted she's never even met Blac Chyna and their daughter, Dream .

Sunweb rode hard in the first climb of the day as German Kittel was dropped, making sure he would not come back.

Boasson Hagen left it late to challenge Matthews and John Degenkolb, but it was the Australian who got his head down to edge it at the end of the 165-kilometre route from Le Puy-en-Velay to Romans-sur-Isere.

Degenkolb gesticulated at Matthews as the pair crossed the line, appearing to indicate that he felt the Australian had pushed him dangerously close to the barriers.

Matthews collected points in the intermediate sprint and at the finish to narrow the gap with Kittel to 29, setting up a duel with the Quick-Step Floors rider in the final days of the race. "I started my sprint and sprinted in a straight line".

The coalition aims to significantly reduce emissions "at a time of limited federal leadership", according to a press release. The American coalition now includes 227 cities and counties, nine states and about 1,650 businesses and investors.

"Everyone knew it was going to split at some point", said Froome.

Romain Bardet (France) and Rigoberto Uran (Colombia) are also both within 30 seconds of the lead with only five stages remaining. I don't think it's very sportsmanlike.

The defending champion feared he would lose the yellow jersey due to a damaged wheel on stage 15, but he recovered to keep his advantage intact after Michal Kwiatkowski removed his wheel and fitted it on the Brit's bike to save him time.
