Bauke Mollema tour de france 2017

Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) survived a punishing route to win his first-ever Tour de France stage.

The Dutchman jumped away from the breakaway group of the day 31 kms from the finish to claim a solo victory ahead of Diego Ulissi and Tony Gallopin.

Chris Froome (Team Sky) bounced back a mechanical failure to pursue Romain Bardet (AG2R) and hold on to the yellow jersey ahead of Fabio Aru (Astana).

Froome was first caught at the end of a split caused by AG2R-La Mondiale, who continued to press the pedals when the race leader suffered a mechanical problem shortly before the key climb of the day.

The Team Sky leader kept his cool, however, and powered his way back to stay on top of the general classification with an 18-second advantage over Italian Fabio Aru.

Bardet, who enjoyed huge crowd support in his home region in the Massif Central, stays third 23 seconds off the pace. Rigoberto Uran is fourth six seconds further back.
