Mollema podiums in San Sebastian as Zubeldia bows out

There is no doubt that the Clasica San Sebastian is a race Bauke Mollema favors after finishing on the podium for the second straight year. Although he was not able to repeat his last year victory in the 231-kilometer Basque classic, Mollema arrived at the finish with a select group of riders and fought his way to third in the five-up sprint, something that is not his forte.

Contador 6th in final time trial, climbs into 9th GC

Alberto Contador was cautious in predicting how he would fare in the stage 20 time trial at the Tour de France Saturday after almost three weeks of up and downs and less than good feelings on the bike, notably in yesterday's stage 19. But when he posted the 6th fastest time at the 10-kilometer time check, and less than one second off the quickest time at the second, he was on for a great finish.

Degenkolb third in windy stage 16

John Degenkolb sprinted to third place from a reduced group that arrived at the finish of stage 16 after a crosswind section split the peloton with 15-kilometers to go. With many riders caught out, including many of the top sprinters, the odds for Degenkolb looked good, but in the final meters ahead of the line, Michael Matthews (Sunweb) moved slightly into Degenkolb's path, enough to impede his progress.
