Omar Fraile wins stage 14 as Geraint Thomas stays in yellow

Тур де Франс-2018 Нильсен из отрыва выиграл транзитный этап

"The jury kicked him (Moscon) out because he hit a rider from the (French) Fortuneo-Samsic team", a senior official, who declined to be named, said.

There had been fears about security on Alpe d'Huez with Froome still facing lingering ill-feeling among some cycling fans following the salbutamol case in which he was cleared of wrong-doing just days before the Tour began, while Sky have often faced a mixed reception in France due to their dominance of the Tour in recent years.

Spanish rider of "Astana" Omar Fraile was the victor of the 14th stage of the 105th version of the Tour de France.

The Italian lashed out at French rider Élie Gesbert of Team Fortuneo while both were competing during Stage 15 from Millau to Carcassonne.

Geraint Thomas signed autographs before the start of Sunday's stage, but some fans have booed the Sky rider in his yellow jersey.

After the team's statement Moscon himself released a video statement on Team Sky's Twitter. "I am very happy to beat them".

"It was one of the stages I had marked and when I saw the breakaway go, I told myself that I had to get in it", he said.

The prospect of a maiden yellow jersey triumph is looming, but Geraint Thomas insists team orders will prevail when it comes to stopping rivals upsetting Team Sky's Tour de France victory plans.

- I cannot complain, as I rode the final climb the best I could.

He said "overthrow, disintegration, boycott and weakening" were the main U.S. policies against Iran . Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned U.S.

Many will agree with Brailsford's assessment but at the same time his comments are bound to inflame the situation further when the race resumes after Monday's rest day.

The race resumes on Tuesday, the first of three days in the Pyrenees likely to see Dutchman Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb), third at 1:50, among Sky's biggest challengers.

"We need to restore calm and respect all the riders", Prudhomme said.

With one week remaining, Froome sits second in the overall standings, 1 minute 39 seconds behind Thomas.

"It's the highlight of my career, wearing the yellow jersey is a massive honor, so yes, a bit of negativity around is not nice, but I just want to stay strong in my head and crack on". Primoz Roglic was fourth at 2:38 behind and Romain Bardet 3:21 behind in fifth.

"We will make a decision about what to do with him after the race, look at processes and go from there", he added.

In the video, Moscon said, 'I'm sorry for today's incident, and totally regret my actions.

Thomas, Froome and the rest of the overall contenders slowly rolled across the finish line at Carcassonne and its medieval city walls 13 minutes after stage victor Magnus Cort Nielsen of Denmark. Astana's Magnus Cort Neilsen won a three-up sprint with Ion Izaguirre (Bahrain-Merida) and Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) for the stage win, with the main bunch rolling home 13 minutes later.
