Toronto Star - - SPORTS/SCOREBOARD -

> LE PUY-EN-VE­LAY, FRANCE— Chris Froome fought back from a bike break­down to re­tain the race leader’s yel­low jer­sey af­ter the tricky 15th stage of the Tour de France, won Sun­day with a solo break­away by Bauke Mollema of the Nether­lands. The 189.5-kilo­me­tre stage from the cat­tle-mar­ket town of Lais­sac-Sev­erac L’Eglise, past rocky out­crops and patch­work fields on the high plateaus of cen­tral France’s Mas­sif Cen­tral moun­tains, show Froome still has en­ergy to burn.
