Marcel Kittel of Germany celebrates winning Stage 10 of the Tour de France

Marcel Kittel of Germany celebrates winning Stage 10 of the Tour de France

Swift crossed the line in 19th place at the end of stage 10 in Bergerac, but only after sitting up having lost the wheels of the leaders, with Marcel Kittel pulling clear to win his fourth stage of this year's Tour.

With barely 500m to go Bodnar was swept up, and from there it was just a matter of watching the peerless Kittel powering to a fifth stage win of this year's Tour.

With Team LottoNL-Jumbo bringing their five-person sprint train for Dylan Groenewegen, the game plan was centred around attempting to win a stage.

New Zealand rider George Bennett has kept his spot in the top 10 for another day, the Nelson cyclist remains in 10th, 3 minutes and 53 seconds behind Froome.

"It was a quiet day, no stress at all", said Froome, who like the other riders enjoyed a rest day on Monday. The stage features six categorized climbs - including one Hors Categorie, but Tour organizers have disappointingly chosen a route that sees the stage conclude on a less-demanding category 2 climb. "I'm not expecting anything insane, but sometimes it's when you don't expect things that they happen".

The VIP visitors enjoy a military ceremonial welcome on Horse Guards Parade to mark the start of their visit to Britain. With a population of around 30,000, Gibraltar was ceded to Britain by Spain under the treaty of Utrecht in 1713.

"The last 20km was my best time trial but I'm not happy about today - I can be happy about my legs but not about the result".

"It's flawless at the moment", said Kittel.

Froome leads Italian Fabio Aru by 18 seconds and France's Romain Bardet by 51 seconds after finishing safely in the pack yesterday as Marcel Kittel won his second stage in two days.

"Kittel was the strongest, he came from behind", Bouhanni said.

Thankfully, Stage 12 reintroduces mountains to the Tour after three days of inaction. It will be another day for the sprinters before a mountain marathon of more than 200 kilometers the next day.

Gasoline stocks fell by 1.6 million barrels, compared with analysts' expectations for a 1.1-million-barrel gain. Gasoline futures gained 0.25 cent, or 0.2%, to $1.5208 a gallon, the 10th gain in 12 sessions.

"It's true, it's fantastic, I can't even tell you how proud I am", said Quick-Step's Kittel.

On Thursday they head from Pau to Peyragudes, a stage which takes Froome back to the slopes where he was famously made to wait for Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2012.

With Froome and his Sky team doing what they do best, controlling the race and stretching out his lead bit by bit every time there's a tough stage as one or more rivals lose time, everyone is going to have to think outside the box and try something different.

Quentin Tarantino to make film based off Charles Manson Family murders
That's dark, even for Tarantino , whose characters tend to be criminals and vigilantes with morals-rarely cold-blooded murderers. In 1971, Manson and several of his followers were sentenced to life in prison in 1971 for multiple murders.
