BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France -- Before launching his downhill attack, Chris Froome landed a left jab -- to a spectators face.Thats what happened when a fan wearing the yellow shirt of Colombias national soccer team and a yellow wig got too close to Froome during Saturdays eighth stage of the Tour de France.I have absolutely nothing against the Colombian fans. I think theyre fantastic. They bring great (spirit) to the race. But this guy in particular was running right next to my handlebars, Froome said after winning the stage and taking the yellow jersey with a successful solo attack from the top of the days final climb in the Pyrenees.He had a flag that was flying out behind him and it was just getting dangerous so I pushed him away, the defending champion added. I lashed out and pushed him away.The spectator was supporting Froomes main rival, two-time Tour runner-up Nairo Quintana of Colombia.Its fantastic having so many fans out on the road but please, dont try and run with the riders, Froome said. It gets really dangerous for the guys behind you.Tour spokesman Fabrice Tiano said the race jury had met and decided to fine Froome 200 Swiss francs ($203) for inappropriate behavior.The incident appeared to motivate Froome, who left Quintana and the other leading contenders behind on the way down from the Col de Peyresourde.Aiming for his third Tour win, Froome established a 23-second lead over Quintana in the overall standings.Entering the descent of the Peyresourde, I took a bottle of water to refresh myself. Froome profited from that move to take a chance into the downhill and open a gap, Quintana said. I hesitated for a couple of seconds and he was gone.(Teammate) Alejandro (Valverde) went flat out to chase that move, but it wasnt enough, Quintana added. Those are seconds I hope wont decide the race. The teammates were perfect, but at the end it was a mistake from myself.Froomes audacious downhill attack will surely gain him the respect of more fans.Previously known as a more calculating rider who slowly wore down his opponents without any surprise moves, he constantly faced doping accusations en route to winning last years Tour.During one stage in 2015, a spectator yelling doper! hurled a cup of urine at Froome.I have no doubt people out there will already be calculating my VAM (velocity ascended meters per hour) going down that last climb, and saying that it was off the charts, Froome said sarcastically, flashing a wide smile.Ive never won a stage like that, Froome added, turning serious again. It really did feel like just taking the race home and enjoying it.---AP Sports Writer Samuel Petrequin contributed to this report.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Air Max 97 Undefeated Blanche .
