Matthews wins Tour de France Stage 10 after long breakaway

Michael Matthews won the 10th stage of the Tour de France in a sprint finish after a long breakaway on Tuesday.

The Australian rider edged world champion Peter Sagan and Edvald Boasson Hagen to claim his first stage win at cycling’s biggest race.

The stage took the riders from Escaldes-Engordany in Andorra on a 197-kilometer trek to Revel in the south of France.

Matthews was part of a group of breakaway riders early in the stage during the 24-kilometer climb to the Port d’Envalira, the highest climb of the Tour at 2,408 meters.

Riding several minutes behind the breakaway in the main peloton, defending champion Chris Froome was expected to keep the yellow jersey.
