Froome in control as Rodriguez wins his second stage


PLATEAU DE BEILLE, France: Chris Froome controlled a series of tentative attacks from his rivals as Joaquim Rodriguez won his second stage of this year’s Tour de France on Thursday (Friday in Manila). Rodriguez, 36, was part of an original 22-man breakaway that gradually split up over the 195km trek from Lannemezan to Plateau de Beille in changing weather that ranged from 38 degree Celsius heat to 12 degrees with thunder, lightning and hail. The Spaniard had already won the third stage finish on the Mur de Huy and also had a stage victory back in 2010, but he wants more.
