Spain’s Fraile wins 14th stage of Tour de France

Omar Fraile wins Tour de France stage Geraint Thomas holds yellow jersey Vincenzo Nibali considers legal action

The 15th stage at the Tour de France, the 181.5km run from Millau to Carcassonne gets under way at 12.10pm (BST) and is scheduled to reach KMO at 12.20pm.

Behind about 20 riders with a kilometre to go, Sagan charged to overtake runner-up Alexander Kristoff and Arnaud Demare, who finished third, at the finish line.

Spain's Omar Fraile celebrates a she crosses the finish line to win the 14th stage of the 105th edition of the Tour de France cycling race, between Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux and Mende on July 21, 2018. Combine this with most teams often wearing the same helmets, sunglasses, kit and even shoes, bike manufacturers take it into their own hands for their headline riders to get the attention they deserve. "Everybody wants to do a sprint now".

Slovenia's Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo) caused the most damage on the double-digit climb with a stinging attack which distanced both Bardet and Quintana while seeing Roglic finish eight seconds clear of the select chasing trio.

The 27-year-old has emerged as the biggest threat to Team Sky two weeks into the Tour and now sits third overall - one minute and 50 seconds in arrears of Thomas and 11 seconds off Froome.

TV footage shows police using ladders to help people get out of the store through some high windows over looking the parking lot. The pictures also show a heavy police presence in the area. "Please stay clear of the area", the LAPD tweeted.

Thomas continues to lead the overall classification, standing at 1:38 ahead of Froome and 1:50 ahead of Dumoulin.

After overzealous fans marred Thomas' win on Thursday atop the Alpe d'Huez, the otherwise complete calm of Friday's leg was briefly disturbed by a man on the roadside who tossed a smoke bomb into the centre of the peloton as it passed by with 16 kilometres left.

As for the jeers directed toward him and Froome by fans skeptical of Froome's clearance from doping allegations days before the start of the Tour, he said it was part of being in the spotlight. But the difference is that at the Giro, Froome was always in a position to attack Simon Yates for the simple reason he was in a different team. Behind, the other stars lost time.

"I think the organisers had tried to put in a few special precautions to stop those kind of things happening", Froome said.

"Who knows how long (Geraint) can hold this top level?" When Froome accelerated, I followed him, and I felt good, too, but then there was this slowing down, and I went down.
