• Lindeman wins Vuelta stage as Froome struggles in the mountains


    ALTO DE CAPILEIRA, Spain: Dutch rider Bert Jan Lindeman won Friday’s (Saturday in Manila) seventh stage of Spain’s Vuelta at La Alpujarra summit during a first stage in the mountains which proved gruelling for Britain’s Chris Froome. The Lotto-Jumbo rider withstood the searing Andalusian heat, powering ahead of Belarusian Ilia Koshevoy of Lampre and Italy’s Fabio Aru of Astana at the line. France’s Jerome Cousin of Europcar finished fourth after taking a tumble in the final straight while en route to victory.
