    导出博客文章LA CAVERNE DU PONT-DARC, France -- Chris Froome and the other Tour de France leaders laid bouquets on the podium in a solemn ceremony. Lorenzo Carter Womens Jersey .There were no kisses, and the usual podium celebrations.The publicity caravan which precedes the riders and blasts music, rode silently.A day after the deadly attack in Nice, Frances biggest sporting event was in mourning.Im not as satisfied as I would normally be. Cycling gets a little less important on a day like this, said Tom Dumoulin after winning the 13th stage time trial on Friday.Froome, second to the Dutch time trial specialist, was in a similar dark mood despite creating bigger gaps on all of his direct rivals with an impressive performance. Froome was the strongest of all the main contenders, and limited his time loss to Dumoulin to 63 seconds.He lead overall improved to 47 seconds on Dutch rider Bauke Mollema. Fellow Briton Adam Yates was third, 2:45 back. Froomes main rival in the mountains, Colombian climber Nairo Quintana, was lagging by 2:59, and the first alpine stage was not until Sunday.Our thoughts are with all the families affected down in Nice. Its where I do most of my training, said Froome, who wore a black armband to his news conference. It definitely puts things into perspective here.Amid reinforced security, the race rolled on and thousands of people lined the 37.5-kilometer (23-mile) route in Ardeche to celebrate the Tour and pay homage to the dozens killed and injured by a truck which drove through beachfront crowds celebrating Bastille Day.There was a minutes silence after the stage, as the yellow, green, and polka-dot jersey holders plus the stage winner gathered on the podium with bouquets.Its a very sad day, said Froome, who tweeted a picture of the French flag in the morning.Im affected by all the things that happened in France. My thoughts are with all the families affected by the attack. I want to express my solidarity with France.Froome attended the post-stage news conference with a black armband. He made only a brief statement after race organizers said he would not take questions about his performance on the bike.Its pretty clear today, said Froome, who lives near Nice in Monaco, everyones thoughts are with those affected down in Nice, and its difficult for us to be talking about the race. I do a lot of training on those roads and to see the Promenade (des Anglais) the way it was last night, with bodies all over the place, was just horrific. My deepest sympathies go out to the affected families.The attack, on Frances national holiday, did not deter fans from showing up in numbers at the starting line in the small town of Bourg-Saint-Andeol.We cant let our guard down, but it was important that they continued the race, said fan Bruno Pruvost after organizers had an emergency meeting with authorities. Otherwise, it would be too easy for them.There was also a moment of silence at the start, several hours drive from Nice, and Tour director Christian Prudhomme wore a black armband around his blue shirt.We want to pay homage to the victims with dignity, said Prudhomme, holding back tears. We have been asking ourselves if the race should continue and, after consulting with authorities, we have decided that it should. The Tour de France will continue in a subdued and solemn manner.The publicity caravan, which precedes the riders on the route every day handing out free gifts and souvenirs and blasting loud music, rode silently.Security had already been reinforced at the Tour this month, with France in a state of emergency since the Paris attacks last November. The three-week race is protected by an unprecedented force of 23,000 police officers, including SWAT-like intervention squads, while security guards perform bag checks and pat downs at the start and finish of every stage.Eric Luzet, the police liaison officer to the Tour, told The Associated Press that extra security measures were implemented overnight, with 600 police officers overseeing the stage.Mollema, who was involved in a crash with Froome inside the last kilometer on Mont Ventoux on Thursday, when a TV motorbike was forced to stop on the road because of fan congestion, said his thoughts are with the people in Nice.Froome was awarded the same time as Mollema, a decision that left Mollema unhappy. But the Dutch rider put his rivalry with Froome aside, and had a strong ride on the windy and narrow roads in the picturesque Gorges de lArdeche. Mollema was 1:54 behind Dumoulin, while Richie Porte, Tejay Van Garderen and Romain Bardet all lost ground to Froome.Van Garderen sits in sixth place, 3:19 back, with Porte 4:27 behind.---AP Sports Writer Andrew Dampf contributed to this report. Cheap Giants Store . LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. Cyber Monday Giants Jerseys . Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. The World Anti-Doping Agencys executive board wants the International Olympic Committee to ban all Russian teams from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics following a report showing the scope and length of state-directed doping in the country.WADA issued a seven-point list of requests after it published a report from Canadian law professor Richard McLaren that confirmed claims of state-backed Russian cheating at the Sochi Olympics and beyond.WADA also wants Russian government officials to be denied access to international competitions, including the upcoming Olympics.The anti-doping watchdog also called on the world governing bodies of sports implicated in the report to consider action against Russian national bodies.McLarens investigation found that Russia falsified at least 312 results from 2011 through at least last years world swimming championships.Calling the report a shocking and unprecedented attack on the integrity of sports and on the Olympic Games, IOC president Thomas Bach said the committee will not hesitate to take the toughest sanctions available against those implicated. The IOC executive board will meet via conference call Tuesday to make initial decisions on possible sanctions for the Rio Games.McLaren dubbed Russias program the disappearing positive methodology in the report, which was released Monday by WADA.The investigator said allegations made by Grigory Rodchenkov, Moscows former anti-doping lab director, about sample switching at the Sochi Olympics went much as described in a New York Times story published in May. That program involved dark-of-night swaps of dirty samples with clean ones, which prevented Russian athletes from testing positive.In short, Russias deputy minister of sports, who was also part of Russias Olympic Committee, would direct workers at Moscows anti-doping laboratory of which positive samples to send through and which to hold back. Assisting the plan was Russias national security service -- the FSB, the current version of the Soviet Unions KGB.McLaren said out of 577 positive sample screenings, 312 positive results were held back -- or labeled Save by the lab workers -- but that was only a small slice of the data that could have been examined. More than 240 of the 312 Saves came from track and field and wrestling, and other sports involved included swimming, rowing, snowboarding and table tennis.Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko personally intervened to cover up a doping case of at least 1 foreign [soccer player] in the Russian League, according to McLaren. The report says 11 positive tests by Russian soccer players were made to disappear in the state-sponsored doping program.It was inconceivable that Minister Mutko was not aware of the doping cover-up scheme, according to evidence from Rodchenkov.Russian President Vladimir Puttin says the officials named in the report as directly responsible for the widespread doping will be suspended pending a thorough investigation in Russia. Black Friday Giants Jerseys. Putin gave no names, but his statement appears to apply to Mutko and his deputy, Yuri Nagornykh, who are both discussed in the report. The report by the WADA investigator says Nagornykh directed workers at Moscows anti-doping laboratory on which positive samples to send through and which to hold back.In the statement released by the Kremlin, Putin asks the WADA commission to provide more complete, objective, evidence-based information about its findings to Russian investigators.McLaren said Russias cheating also included the 2013 track world championships in Moscow and the 2015 swimming world championships in Kazan.The 97-page McLaren report is the result of a two-month investigation. McLaren said he is confident the document was not leaked and stands by its credibility.Several athlete and anti-doping groups, including the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, were gearing up over the weekend to send letters to the IOC urging that Russias entire delegation be banned from next months Rio Games.Olympic leaders had said those moves undermined the report and called it disappointing that the groups would try to have Russia banned in such an underhanded way.McLaren said the moves to send the letters were based on nothing more than speculation. He did not include a recommendation for punishment in the report?and urged the IOC and others to absorb the information and act upon it as they wish.Travis Tygart, the CEO of USADA, called the report proof of a?mind-blowing level of corruption and?urged the international community to come together to ensure that what he called an unprecedented level of criminality never threatens sports again.Tygarts statement did not include a call for a full ban of the Russian team from the Rio Games.?Last week, he said if the report was as damning as expected that he would push for such a ban.U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun said in a statement that the report confirms what we have stated previously: the current anti-doping system is broken and urgently requires the attention of everyone interested in protecting clean athletes.In the meantime, we are focused on preparing Team USA to compete at the upcoming Rio Games and will rely on the IOC, WADA and the international federations to impose sanctions that are appropriate in relation to the magnitude of these offenses, and that give clean athletes some measure of comfort that they will be competing on a level playing field in Rio, Blackmun said.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
