Chris Froome strengthened his grip on the yellow jersey on a sombre day at the Tour de France. Youth Saints Jerseys .Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin won the Stage 13 time trial from Bourg-Saint-Andeol to La Caverne du Pont dArc with Froome setting the second-best time to add another minute to his cushion over second place.But Froome, a Monaco resident, had little interest in discussing the race, which took place in the wake of the terrorist attack that killed at least 84 people in Nice on Thursday night.Although he attended the yellow-jersey holders customary news conference after the stage, the Briton took no questions and instead gave a short statement.I think its pretty clear today everyones thoughts are with those affected down in Nice, Froome said. I think its difficult for us to even be here talking about the race with all that happening yesterday down in Nice.Its somewhere pretty close to home for me, somewhere I do a lot of training, and to see the promenade the way it was yesterday evening with bodies over the road is horrific, horrific scenes.My deepest sympathy, my deepest condolences go out to those families who have lost loved ones in Nice.Time trial specialist Dumoulin won with a time of 50 minutes, 15 seconds over the rolling 37.5-km stage, with Froome 1:03 off that pace.But with Bauke Mollema the next best among the general classification contenders, Froome is considerably more comfortable in yellow going into the weekend.Mollema moved up to second overall, displacing Briton Adam Yates, but he is 1:47 behind Froome.After the stage, Froome was joined on the podium by the other jersey holders -- Yates in the young riders white, Peter Sagan in the points leaders green and Thomas De Gendt in polka dots for the king of the mountains -- as well as Dumoulin and several Tour officials to pay their respects to victims of the Nice attack.Several children were among the dead after a terrorist drove a truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day along the Promenade des Anglais.On Friday morning, Tour officials met with police, government, regional and security officials to discuss security arrangements, and Tour director Christian Prudhomme vowed the race would continue in sobriety and with dignity.We wish today to be dignified, in tribute to the victims, Prudhomme said. We are thinking about the families, we offer our condolences to everyone who has been affected, who has lost a loved one. To everyone who is injured, in flesh and in their being.We asked questions of ourselves, effectively. But we think, in agreement with the state authorities, that the race should continue, and we mustnt give in to pressure of people who want us to change our way of life.Twenty-four hours before he crossed the line here, Froome had been caught in a chaotic and bizarre end to Stage 12 on Mont Ventoux, where he crashed along with Mollema and former team-mate Richie Porte when a television motorbike was caught in huge crowds on the mountain.After briefly racing up the mountain on foot before changing bikes, Froome lost almost two minutes -- enough to cost him the yellow jersey -- until the race jury intervened and he came out with an increased lead, 47 seconds over Yates.It was unclear whether Froome had suffered any injuries in the incident, but there was little sign of that as he turned in a strong Friday ride to increase his advantage.Yates had expected to lose time on this stage and duly gave up almost two minutes to Froome, at least better than the four minutes he predicted.Movistars Nairo Quintana also lost out, slipping to two minutes and 59 seconds off yellow although the Colombian is still in fourth place.

The 36-year-old American also turned in the top time in Thursdays opening training session. Black Saints Jerseys . The Croatian served 21 aces and hit 42 winners against Sijsling, who double-faulted to give Cilic a 4-3 lead in the deciding set. "All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me," Cilic said. . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. The mayor of Oakland announced that the city has reached a framework agreement with the Ronnie Lott group for a new stadium, with the hopes of keeping the Raiders in Oakland.It is exciting that we have reached a conceptual framework agreement with the Lott group, said Mayor Libby Schaaf.The framework agreement does not include the Raiders, nor has Raiders owner Mark Davis agreed to stay in Oakland. The agreement would need to be approved by the Board of Supervisors and the Oakland City Council before the groups could move forward.Schaaf is scheduled to present the deal to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday in a closed-door session. It would then go to the Oakland City Council on Nov. 29, if it passes.Davis reaffirmed to ESPN in October that he plans to play the next two seasons at the Oakland Coliseum, even if the team gets the green light from the NFL to move to Las Vegas.We want to bring a Super Bowl championship back to the Bay Area, DDavis said at the time. Throwback Saints Jerseys. Davis and the Raiders have the financing plan in place for a $1.9 billion stadium to be built in Las Vegas after the Nevada state legislature approved a tax plan in October to raise $750 million toward the project. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval then signed the bill, clearing the way for the stadium, which would also be used by UNLVs football team.Davis has denied speculation that supporting the Las Vegas plan was a way to force Oakland to build a new stadium.I made a commitment to the governor of Nevada, he said in October. Ive never used another city as leverage.Relocation needs the blessing of three-fourths of NFL team owners, who historically have shunned Las Vegas because of its legalized sports betting.ESPNs Paul Gutierrez and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
