• Van Poppel takes Vuelta stage 12, Froome withdraws


    LLEIDA, Spain: Dutch rider Danny van Poppel won stage 12 of Spain’s Vuelta on Thursday as Tour de France winner Chris Froome became the latest big name to withdraw from the race. Froome was aiming to become just the third man to win the Tour and the Vuelta in the same year, but his chances were realistically ended by a crash on Wednesday’s daunting mountainous 138km ride through Andorra and scans on Thursday showed he had suffered a broken bone in his foot.
