Froome takes back yel­low jersey from Aru

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SPORTS -

Fabio Aru was dropped in the last 500 me­ters of Stage 14 of the Tour de France won by Michael Matthews and re­lin­quished the yel­low jersey to Chris Froome on Satur­day.

Aru lost touch with the lead­ers in the fi­nal short, sharp as­cent of the Cote de Saint Pierre in the town of Rodez and crossed the line 25 sec­onds be­hind Matthews.

Froome, who trailed Aru by six sec­onds at the start of the stage in Blagnac, was well po­si­tioned at the front and had no prob­lem tack­ling the fi­nal climb.
