Froome forced down into fourth in Criterium du Dauphine

Froome's team mate Kennaugh was part of the day's breakaway and he dropped compatriot Ben Swift (United Arab Emirates) on the final climb to claim his second stage win in the Dauphine.

The Astana rider attacked on the final climb to the Plateau de Solaison in the French Alps, a grueling 11.3-kilometre (7-mile) ascent at an average gradient of 9.2 per cent, to win the 115-kilometre (71.5-mile) stage and leapfrog overnight leader Richie Porte.

Paris: Australian Richie Porte has strengthened his overall lead in the Criterium du Dauphine, gaining time over his closest rivals in the queen stage won by Peter Kennaugh.

New election only alternative to deal with DUP - senior Conservative MP
Following talks between Mrs May and the DUP on Saturday night, a second statement confirmed that no final deal had been reached. Davidson was one of the few Conservative success stories in the election as the Scottish wing of the party won 13 seats.

"It's always hard to win a mountain stage but I have good form ahead of July", said Kennaugh, a team pursuit gold medallist at London 2012.

"We planned it very well with Fabio (Aru) attacking (with Alejandro Valverde in the col de la Colombiere) and everything went in our favour".

Three-time Tour champion Froome finished fourth overall, 1:33 off the pace and one second behind Martin. This great victory is for her.

Senna helmet is a replica
Ayrton was the guy who I knew at the beginning, it was the colour of the helmet, that's what you notice as a kid. When asked how much Ferrari is pushing Mercedes, Hamilton said: "I think I would say more".

"There's still a long way to the Tour but I'm really happy with my condition now".

The Quick-Step rider was second behind Jakob Fuglsang in the climactic race to Plateau de Solaison, and that was enough to lift him five places in the general classification behind Danish victor Fuglsang and Australian Richie Porte. "I'll have to take it easy onto the Tour", he said.
