Tour de France

NANCY, France – A brief look at the seventh stage of the Tour de France on Friday.
Stage: A 234.5-kilometer (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 final 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 Giro d’Italia and Spanish Vuelta winner finished in the pack to retain his two-second lead over Astana teammate Jakob Fuglsang. Two-time Tour winner Alberto Contador remains 2 minutes, 37 seconds behind.
Quote of the Day: “The Tour is cruel and unforgiving, Tejay van Garderen wrote on Twitter after his crash within the last 17 kilometers.
Stat of the Day: 63. The time in seconds lost by Van Garderen, who slipped to 18th in the overall standings, 3:14 behind Nibali.
Saturday’s Stage: A 161-kilometer (100-mile) trek from Tomblaine to Gerardmer La Mauselaine, featuring three climbs in the final 30 kilometers. Climbers will have a chance to shine in that tricky stage.
