The end of the stage is a consistent climb, hills that should test the already weary legs fresh off the imposing Pyrenees. Perry was the executive vice president of operations for the Sacramento Kings and previously held front-office roles for other organizations. There is no hiding. It's a victory that will ease a lot of internal tension for Matthews. 'It was very, very tough at the finish, ' he said.

Bennett attacked with 500m left and tried to grab the stage victory. I expected to lose half an hour, to lose everything, so I'm really happy. The Italian's Astana team has been decimated by crashes and would have almost no chance of controlling race on a stage such as this. No big deal, right?

"It up to my rivals to attack me", Froome added.

Froome again benefited from a bonded Team Sky effort to finish seventh overall and a second behind Matthews, but Aru ending a further 26 seconds behind him gave the Briton the opening he needed to move back into the lead.

DESSERT: "Coucougnettes du Vert Galant" translate as the Vigorous Suitor's testicles and are grilled almonds coated in dark chocolate and raspberry marzipan.

"Now to come back on the same finish to win it like that is really a dream come true".

Frenchman Romain Bardet, runner-up last year, won the stage to stay third overall, 25 seconds behind Aru, while Froome slipped to second, six seconds off the pace.

In this step, the transition type under the heat along the 181,5 kilometers, the breakaway was attended by five riders (Voeckler, De Gendt, Roosen, Bouet and Hollenstein) as of the first kilometers. "We have never been closer".

What a Bastille Day it was in France on Friday.

Meintjes went on to social media to thank everyone on their support and express his determination for the white jersey. It's his third win of the year, his third with Team Sunweb, and certainly the biggest win since he changed teams at the start of this year.

In this one instance, there seemed a lack of imagination. But Kittel still has three realistic opportunities remaining to add to his haul.

One of Ohio State's most famous football stars sued the university over a marketing program he said used athletes' images without permission and robbed them of compensation. Froome lost 22 seconds and crossed the line looking destroyed. It was the stage I targeted before I crashed.

After the heavy, duck-based dishes of France's southwest, time for solid mountain fare. We knew that because they told us about the "remarkable gardens" three or four times in succession. "Against these guys it is not very realistic to win, but you got to try", he said.

The parade is over. The assaults continued as the race entered the flat, with attack after attack eventually resulting in Martin surging clear.
