Tour de France: Matthews claims stage 10

Australia’s Michael Matthews timed his sprint perfectly to clinch stage 10 of the Tour de France in Revel on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old completed the 197km trek from Escaldes-Engordany in a time of 4 hours, 22 minutes and 38 seconds, enough to edge out Peter Sagan by the narrowest of margins.

Matthews benefited from compatriot and team mate Luke Durbridge’s work to prevail and this win sees him clinch his first Tour de France stage win.

Britain’s Chris Froome finished safely to retain the overall leader’s yellow jersey. The Team Sky rider now leads fellow countryman Adam Yates by 16 seconds going into stage 11, a 162.5 kilometre run from Carcacassone to Montpellier.
