Unstoppable five-star Kittel sprints to another stage win

Kittel wins Tour stage 11 Froome keeps yellow jersey

Aru, the Italian champion and 2015 Spanish Vuelta victor, leads the list followed closely by last year's runner-up Romain Bardet, the Frenchman who is third overall, 51 seconds back.

Jakob Fuglsang - fifth overall - hit the deck along with team-mate Dario Cataldo.

AG2R La Mondiale's Romain Bardet, who sits third, 51 seconds off Froome, also hit the deck twice but recovered, while two-time Tour victor Alberto Contador went down with around 20 kilometres remaining before getting back in.

Chris Froome says that it was nice for Stage 10 to not be a insane day after the chaos of Sunday.

"A huge, huge honor", the British rider said of the 50 days in yellow.

Marine killed in MS crash identified as Detroit native
The refueling aircraft crashed Monday afternoon in a soybean field in rural MS , killing at least 16 people aboard. Emergency officials respond to the site of a military plane crash near Itta Bena, Miss., Monday, July 10, 2017.

Tour de France 2017, Stage 12 begins on July 13th, 2017 8:00 AM EST.

If only Tour de France riders and organizers had agreed to rest the last two days and hand Marcel Kittel his inevitable stage victories, they would have spared themselves a lot of kilometers and the rest of us some rather boring racing.

While Cavendish went home with a broken shoulder blade and world champion Peter Sagan was disqualified for causing the incident, Swift thought he had escaped largely unscathed.

"That crash really knocked me for six", he said. It's definitely going to help shape the General Classification even further I believe.

After a plane journey across France and a rest day, the race resumed in Perigueux for a flat ride through the lush landscapes of the Dordogne province in southwestern France.

Januzaj leaves Manchester United for Real Sociedad
Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho no longer saw Januzaj as part of his plans - despite the player wanting to stay put . Following the Romelu Lukaku saga with Chelsea, Manchester United are ensuring they don't make the same mistakes.

The Quick-Step Floors rider faced the prospect of seeing victory slip through his fingers after a spirited effort from Poland's Maciej Bodnar. 'It is a lifetime experience.' Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen of LottoNL-Jumbo was second ahead of Team Dimension Data's Norwegian Edvald Boasson Hagen. "I personally like to act like I don't have green on my shoulders because you saw a couple of days ago with the GC guys the race can very quickly be over", Kittel said.

"It's a scary prospect when you've got to survive two weeks like that but I've done it before and I feel like I can do it again". I always keep the pressure on myself.

"As Roly was saying, you just gotta follow and be smart".

Thursday will be a welcome Pyrenees mountain stage with a two-headed summit finish-the Peyresourde and the Peyragudes.

"I have mixed feelings about that day", Froome said. Legend has it that Simpson's last words were "put me back on the bike", which he duly was before collapsing a second time. It will be another day for the sprinters before a mountain marathon of more than 200 kilometers the next day.
