ALTOPIANO DEL MONTASIO, Italy -- Colombian rider Rigoberto Uran won the first big mountain stage of the Giro dItalia on Tuesday, and Vincenzo Nibali held onto the overall lead after the 10th leg. Pre-race favourite Bradley Wiggins dropped further behind on the steep, uphill finish, while defending champion Ryder Hesjedal dropped out of contention on the first climb. The 26-year-old Uran, who rides for Wiggins Sky team and won the best young riders jersey during last years race, clocked more than 4 1/2 hours over the 167-kilometre leg from Cordenons to Altopiano del Montasio, which featured two difficult climbs, including a long, grueling uphill finish. It was Urans first victory in a Grand Tour. "It nice to finally be able to finish off a victory," he said. Another Colombian, Carlos Betancour, finished 20 seconds behind in second. Nibali, an Italian with Astana, won a sprint for third, 31 seconds back to keep the pink jersey. Mauro Santambrogio was fourth and 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans crossed fifth, both also 31 seconds back. Wiggins crossed 10th, 1:08 back. Victorias Hesjedal was 71st in the stage, 20 minutes 53 seconds behind Uran. He dropped to 33rd overall, 23:45 behind Nibali. Nibali earned an eight-second bonus for finishing third and increased his lead over Evans to 41 seconds. Uran moved up from ninth to third, 2:04 back. Wiggins remained fourth but now trails by 2:05, while Robert Gesink of the Netherlands is fifth, 2:12 behind. Michele Scarponi, the 2011 Giro winner, dropped from fifth to sixth. "Today could have been a difficult day because it followed a rest day," Nibali said. "Wiggins lost some time. I was worried about Scarponi, but he also lost something. At this point, I think Evans becomes one of the most dangerous opponents. "I have a decent lead on Uran and just as much on Wiggins. I think well keep an eye on both of them. I wont know Skys strategy but well try to figure it out." Henao, another strong Colombian climber for Sky, is 19th overall. "We had three cards to play -- me, (Sergio) Henao and Wiggins -- and it worked for me today," Uran said. "We have the strongest team. ... Both Henao and I know that our job is to help Bradley. But then of course well see day by day what happens." The first climb over the Cason di Lanza pass lasted 14.5 kilometres at gradients as high as 16 per cent with snow lining the road. The finishing climb to Montasio, in the Giro for the first time, lasted 21.9 kilometres with leg-breaking stretches at 20 per cent gradients. Earlier this year, fans were allowed to send in messages for the stage via Twitter, which were printed on the road leading up to Montasio, which is located in the northeastern corner of Italy. The stage began with a 13-man breakaway, which fell apart on the first climb. Nibali had a tire puncture but quickly caught back up to the main pack with the help of his teammates. On the finishing climb, Sky rode up front to set up Urans attack with eight kilometres to go. Before Tuesdays start, German sprinter John Degenkolb withdrew. He won the fifth stage. Stage 11 Wednesday is a 182-kilometre leg from Tarvisio to Vajont featuring two category-2 climbs. The race ends May 26 in Brescia. Grey Air Max 90 2018 .

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Another major championship is upon us, and so quickly. Werent we just lamenting the possibility of gusty winds and sideways rain off the coast of Scotland?That has been replaced by temperatures 40 degrees warmer, five time zones but just 11 days removed from the thrilling conclusion to The Open at Royal Troon.With barely any time to get acclimated, the PGA Championship is set to begin at Baltusrol Golf Club on Thursday morning. The rain and chill of Scotland has been replaced by New Jerseys unrelenting heat and humidity for the years final major championship.And for the first time since 1968, two major champions will be crowned in the same month -- provided Mother Nature does not push the 98th PGA Championship to a Monday finish.Theres no time to really dwell on anything, said Rory McIlroy, a two-time PGA Championship winner who is ranked No. 4 in the world. You can just keep going forward. It could actually be a good thing for some people.Perhaps Henrik Stenson? The Open champion is riding a wave of good play, having won the BMW International Open last month in Germany prior to his historic Open victory, during which he matched a major championship scoring record with a final-round 63.Stenson outdueled Phil Mickelson, who played brilliantly himself, finishing 11 strokes ahead of the next competitor. Mickelson, 46, is returning to the scene of his 2005 PGA Championship victory, with no time to feel sorry for himself after a performance that would have won 140 of the 145 Opens.Because we have a big tournament coming up right now and because I am playing well, he said, I dont want to let an opportunity, another really good opportunity that I have to play a PGA Championship here at Baltusrol at a course I like while my game is sharp ... and let the effects or disappointment linger.The idea is to just get back and start playing at that level again, and hopefully it will be enough this week.The PGA Championship has been played in August since 1971; that year, it moved to a February date in Florida. The last time two majors were completed in the same month was 1968, when Gary Player won The Open on July 13 at Carnoustie, Scotland, followed by Julius Boros PGA Championship victory on July 21 in San Antonio, Texas. (Player skipped the PGA that year.)The move this year was necessitated by golfs return to the Olympic Games in two weeks, hence the PGA being played two weeks earlier than usual. PGA of America officials say they are fine with it -- the tournament has announced a sellout -- aand players for the most part have come to terms with the unusual schedule.ddddddddddddPreferably one more week would have been a good thing, said Stenson.After winning The Open, Stenson headed to Switzerland for an outing, then to his home in Sweden to visit with family before returning to the U.S. over the weekend.But at the same time, when youve got the momentum and youre playing well, it might not be bad to get straight back at it, he said. It could be a bit of both.Stenson admitted, however, that the schedule has been brutal and will continue to be. Hes playing for Sweden in the Olympics, and then the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoffs -- over five weeks -- begins just two weeks later. Then comes the Ryder Cup.I know Im going to be sleeping for at least a week after the Ryder Cup, Stenson said. Thats kind of blocked out in the calendar. Just a couple of zzzzzs next to each other for a week. I knew this was going to be the case. We were going to have four months of virtually nonstop golf. Its always the busy part of the schedule, but even more so in the 2016 schedule.Defending champion Jason Day has seen his preparation impacted by the tight schedule. Two weeks ago he was battling the elements in Scotland. A week ago he traveled to Toronto to defend his Canadian Open title; he didnt contend at either tournament.He planned a much-needed day off for Monday and felt under the weather on Tuesday, electing to skip a practice round. That meant Wednesday was his only look at Baltusrol.With the limited practice and limited prep that Ive had this week, Im not coming into this week expecting a lot, said Day, the No. 1-ranked player in the world who has won three times this year. Obviously, Im expecting to win, but Im not really going to go out and force things straightaway. Ive got to really try and manage my patience out there.Last year Day set a majors scoring record in relation to par, shooting 20 under at Whistling Straits to capture his first major championship. Since then, three more first-time major winners have prevailed: Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson and Stenson.With the deepest field of any of the majors, predicting a PGA winner is always a challenge, made more so by the difficulties of the schedule and the various obstacles it has presented up to this point.But 72 holes are on tap for the next four days, the low score wins, and someone will make history, regardless.
