Tour de France
A brief look at the seventh stage of the Tour de France on Friday:
Stage: 145.7-mile mostly flat stage from Epernay, the capital of champagne country, to the eastern city of Nancy, a World Heritage site. The race was marred by multiple crashes, including one involving Andrew Talansky in the final sprint.
Winner: Matteo Trentin beat Peter Sagan in a photo finish. Sagan pulled away in the last climb of the day, the Cote de Boufflers, but he was reeled in by the pack in the penultimate kilometer.
Yellow jersey: Vincenzo Nibali. The former Spanish Vuelta and Giro d'Italia winner finished in the pack to retain his two-second lead over Astana teammate Jakob Fuglsang. Two-time Tour winner Alberto Contador is still 2 minutes, 37 seconds behind.
Today's stage: A 100-mile trek from Tomblaine to Gerardmer La Mauselaine, featuring three climbs in the last 30 kilometers. Climbers will have a chance to shine in that tricky stage.
