PORRENTRUY, Switzerland—Thibaut Pinot gave France its first stage victory in
the Tour de France on Sunday while Bradley Wiggins of Britain kept the overall
lead as the race entered Switzerland. Dunta Robinson Jersey . Pinot broke away from
the pack during a steep, final climb and captured the 157.5-kilometre (98-mile),
eighth stage from Belfort to the Swiss town of Porrentruy. The 22-year-old
Frenchman, the youngest rider in the main pack, held on during a frenzied chase
in the last 10 kilometres (6 miles), a mostly flat stretch. This was by far
Pinots biggest achievement. His previous top performance was at the 2010 Tour of
Romandie, where he was honoured as the best climber. “I will remember this day
my entire life,” Pinot said as teammates embraced him. “I cant yet get my mind
around it.” Overall, Wiggins leads defending champion Cadel Evans by 10 seconds.
The Australian mounted a late but unsuccessful attack on the Briton. Italys
Vincenzo Nibali was third, 16 seconds off the pace. Defending Olympic champion
Samuel Sanchez withdrew after a crash 56 kilometres (35 miles) into the stage.
He broke his right hand and injured his left shoulder, and could miss the London
Games. Sanchez fell on his side before two other riders landed on him. He sat on
the ground in tears, clutching his left shoulder and arm as medical teams tended
to him. He could not get back on a bike and was put on a stretcher and taken by
ambulance to a nearby hospital in Montbeliard. Sanchez entered the day in 12th
place. Crashes have marred the first week of the Tour, with nearly all of the 20
riders who have withdrawn from the race thus far out with injury. Evans was
second, 26 seconds behind Pinot—the same time as Wiggins and seven other
riders, including several title contenders. The ride into the Jura range next to
the Alps, known as the birthplace of the Swiss army knife, offered double drama:
A hard last climb that splintered the pack, and a nail-biting chase of Pinot to
the finish. The days last, and the steepest climb over the 3.7-kilometre
(2.2-mile) Col de la Croix, obliterated the pack, with riders like Alejandro
Valverde of Spain and Peter Sagan of Slovakia dropping off the back. Frederik
Kessiakov of Sweden pressed the pace, but Wiggins and others, chasing the title,
were content to let him go. The Astana rider began the day in 80th place, 19
minutes behind the British race leader. Pinot, bounding out of his saddle with
powerful legs, chased uphill and then sped past Kessiakov with a few hundred
meters left before the peak of the Col de la Croix – and held on all the way to
the finish. Wiggins called the stage “a tough day on the team,” referring to his
British squad Team Sky, and said he was content to get through it: “Another
tough day ticked off.” But Wiggins enjoyed the late jockeying. “It was good fun
coming in at the end there,” he said. “It was a bit like being in a junior race
again. Everyone attacking in ones and twos. Its good—its what its all about.”
Wiggins also hailed a “fantastic ride” by Pinot. “It was a tough day out there
and to do that last 10 to 15k into a headwind, solo, it shows how good he is,”
the Briton said. Mondays stage returns to favourable territory for riders like
Wiggins and Evans: A time-trial. Riders will set off one by one in the
41.5-kilometre (26-mile) race against the clock from Arc-en-Senans to Besancon.

Vettel.DETROIT—Budd Lynch, a veteran radio broadcaster who spent more than 60
years working for the Detroit Red Wings and became the teams public voice, died
Tuesday. He was 95. Lynch, the hockey clubs public address announcer, died
following a brief illness at a Detroit-area rehabilitation centre, the team said
in a release. At 63 years, Lynch was the longest-tenured employee in team
history. “Budd Lynch was a dear member of the Detroit Red Wings family and
legendary icon of our community,” Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch said. “Hearing
Budds voice on the radio and over the public address at Joe Louis Arena was
something that every Red Wings fan looked forward to and loved. His calm,
friendly and distinguished voice was symbolic of who Budd was as a person.”
Lynch began his broadcasting career in 1936 at a Hamilton, Ontario, radio
station shortly after graduating from high school. He switched stations the
following year and volunteered in 1939 in the Canadian Army. Lynch served as a
major in the Essex Scottish Regiment during World War II, losing his right arm
and shoulder in a rocket attack following the D-Day invasion at Normandy. He
worked with the British Broadcasting Co. through the end of the war and later
was hired by CKLW in Wiindsor where he was sports director and did play-by-play
of Windsor Spitfires games. William Moore Camo Jersey. Beginning in the
1949-50 National Hockey League season, Lynch began calling televised Red Wings
games for WWJ in Detroit. He did play-by-play during four Stanley Cup
championship campaigns that decade. Lynch became the play-by-play announcer for
the Red Wings on the radio starting in 1960 and held the job for the next 15
years. He later served as the teams director of publicity and the public address
announcer at “the Joe.” “Budd Lynch will forever be synonymous with the Detroit
Red Wings,” general manager Ken Holland said. “He experienced it all in his 63
years with the organization. He had a vast knowledge of the game and the stories
he could tell would have anyone who loves the sport mesmerized for hours.” Lynch
was honoured in 1985 by the NHL Broadcasters Association with the Foster Hewitt
Memorial Award at the Hockey Hall of Fame and was enshrined nine years later in
the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame. He was given the Ty Tyson Award for excellence
in broadcasting in 2005 by the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association. Lynch is
survived by his daughters, Janis, Valerie, Mary, Francey, Patricia and Lori. ’ ’
