Ewan rockets to Tour de France bunch sprint victory

first_imgAfter a rampaging climax to Sunday’s race provided by Alaphilippe, this stage was a more leisurely run through a national park located between the Mediterranean and the foot of the Alps, winding through oak and pine-forested hills.With around a third of the peloton nursing grazes and bumps from that bruising first stage, and with Sunday’s speedy stage in their legs, the teams took it slowly before the Tour was treated to its first real sprint.”Today was one of the few real sprint opportunities, so we weren’t going to give that up,” Ewan said after stepping from the podium.Superstar sprinter Peter Sagan was again in the mix and gleaned enough points from his fifth position to take the green jersey he has won a record seven times. Ewan, known as the ‘Pocket Rocket’ and standing 1.65 meters, bided his time and overtook Bennett right on the line.The timely win gave Lotto a double boost after the team was reduced from eight to six riders on stage one when Philippe Gilbert broke a knee while John Degenkolb was thrown off the race for missing the time cut after a nasty fall.”It worked perfectly to plan, I had to move just at the right moment. It was disappointing to lose two riders on day one, but everyone has pulled together and we’ve done quite well,” Ewan said.”The world is watching and everyone would like to be here at this, it’s the biggest race in the world and I’m delighted.” Sweet moments for Alaphilippe Despite the Covid-19 resurgence in France, the roadsides in this pastoral part of France were packed with fans on Tuesday.Schoolchildren were out in force chasing the sweets and goodies thrown from the publicity caravan, which is about 70 percent smaller this year, and many were cheering home hero Alaphilippe.”Winning yesterday really relaxed me,” said Alaphilippe. “It’s a great honor to wear the jersey and I’ll be defending it day by day.”Tuesday’s stage features a summit finish and a tricky hill-laden route from Sisteron to Orcieres where Alaphilippe faces a real fight from British rider Adam Yates for the overall lead. Just four seconds separate the two.”I know it’ll be interesting with Adam Yates tomorrow,” said Alaphilippe, who now surpasses former winner Geraint Thomas in days wearing the yellow jersey.”It’s a difficult stage, I hear. I haven’t really studied it yet, but we’ll keep an eye on him [Yates],” Alaphilippe added.Yates, who has signed a deal to switch to Ineos, came fourth in the 2016 Tour de France where he also won the white jersey for the best under-25 rider.Frenchman Anthony Lopez broke a shoulder in a collision with a Cofidis team car that is being investigated, but amazingly, given how many falls there have been each day, he was just the fourth of the original field of 176 to leave the Tour so far. Australian rider Caleb Ewan produced an irresistible late burst of speed to pip a stunned Sam Bennett of Ireland on the finish line of stage three of the Tour de France on Monday.France’s Julian Alaphilippe retained the leader’s yellow jersey after the 198-kilometre stage from the Nice football stadium to the hilltop town of Sisteron in Provence.Ewan, 26, won three stages on the 2019 Tour but started this edition on his backside after a fall on the crash-strewn opening stage.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandDon Newcombe sat on more buses with Jackie Robinson than most men, maybe more than any man. He sat down with Dodgers owner Walter O’Malley in 1970 to create the Dodgers’ community relations department, believed to be the first of its kind in Major League Baseball. He sat with players who struggled with addiction. He sat in the front row of press conferences introducing new owners, managers and players.And when those players wandered off the field during batting practice at Dodger Stadium, Newcombe often sat in the seat closest to the third-base dugout. He was unmistakable: a preternaturally distinguished gentleman in a trademark Fedora, polished shoes, collared shirt, and a tailored suit with a pocket square. His title was Special Advisor to the Chairman, but his presence always transcended his title – and his seat.Newcombe died on Tuesday following a long illness. He was 92.“I always went over there and made a point to talk to him,” Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill said. “I think that’s important for me just to get a perspective of the game from a different era. He was the best – an MVP, just an incredible talent. I learned a lot from him about taking care of yourself. That was something he preached almost every time I saw him. He was extremely vocal about his struggles. “The Dodgers are one of the franchises you talk about that have so much history in the game and to have a piece of that here and now it’s gone,” Hill said. “This is a sad day.”Newcombe was among the franchise’s last links to its Brooklyn roots. He was the 1949 Rookie of the Year, and the National League MVP and Cy Young Award winner in 1956.Newcombe was among the pioneering African American players on the Dodgers – along with Robinson and Roy Campanella, he took part in baseball’s first integrated spring training camp in 1946 – and an icon for the American Civil Rights movement. He became the first black pitcher to start a World Series game, in 1949, and the first to win 20 games, in 1951.At a fundraising event for Sen. Barbara Boxer in 2010, President Barack Obama called Newcombe “somebody who helped Major League Baseball become what it is, but also helped America become what it is.”“I would not be here if it were not for Jackie and if it were not for Don Newcombe,” Obama said at the time. “What he went through for us today to be here and play this game – him and Jackie and Campanella,” Jansen said. “Those three Dodger greats did a lot for us to have this moment to play this game. I learned so much from him – what he went through. … I learned to be a better father to my kids, a better husband. Definitely learned a lot from him.”Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, who migrated from Brooklyn to Los Angeles with Newcombe and the Dodgers in 1958, also offered his condolences Tuesday.“Don Newcombe was a big man in every way. He had a big trophy case (MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year winner). Don was admired by Dr. Martin Luther King and he was a big champion in the fight for equality along with Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella. The former 27-game winner was an even bigger winner when he overcame his battle with alcoholism and helped others whenever he could. He truly was a big man on and off the field and he will be missed by all.”Newcombe is survived by his wife, Karen, three children, one stepson and two grandchildren. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.Staff Writer Bill Plunkett contributed to this story.RELATED: Don Newcombe’s rare interview: Dodger great talks about barriers and breaking them down Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire center_img A four-time All-Star, Newcombe finished his baseball career with 149 wins, 60 losses and a 3.56 earned-run average. He lost two years of his prime to military service during the Korean War. He pitched for the Dodgers from 1949-58, including 11 games after the franchise moved to Los Angeles. He was traded to the Cincinnati Reds in June 1958 and finished his career with the Cleveland Indians in 1960.After he announced his retirement from MLB, Newcombe was lured to Japan by the Chunichi Dragons. He played his only season in Japan’s top league as an outfielder, hitting 12 home runs in 81 games. Along with Larry Doby, he was one of two players who spent time in MLB, Nippon Professional Baseball and the Negro Leagues.“Don Newcombe had a ton of talent and he was a great competitor,” Dodgers Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda said. “He was a helluva pitcher and he was one of the best hitting pitchers I have ever seen.”Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax called Newcombe a “mentor at first, friend at the end, missed by anyone who got to know him.”Newcombe was one of three players honored in an on-field ceremony last September as “Legends of Dodger Baseball,” along with Fernando Valenzuela and Steve Garvey. His contributions to the team extended beyond the field.A recovering alcoholic, Newcombe helped formalize the first substance abuse program tailored specifically for major league players. Up until his final years, Newcombe annually traveled from his home in Sherman Oaks to the Dodgers’ spring training camp to tell players about the dangers of alcohol abuse.“You could just tell what it meant to him,” Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw said. “He had a pretty incredible life. A great story, a pioneer for a lot of different things in baseball. Getting to know him over the years, a great man. He’ll be missed for sure. The Dodger uniform meant a lot to him.”Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said learning of Newcombe’s death was “definitely a sad moment.”“I kind of accept it today, that he’s gone, compared to two weeks ago when I talked to him on the phone,” Jansen said. “He was kind of in and out. That gives you a reality check that he’s getting there now. To see how the last few months go for him, sometimes it’s the best for him to be in heaven today. He definitely will be missed. I’m going to miss him a ton.”Jansen, who was perhaps closest to Newcombe among the current Dodger players, said their conversations ran the gamut on and off the field.Related Articles Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies last_img read more
