Valverde eyes Tour of Catalonia title after Froome fades (The Associated Press)

Chris Froome fell out of contention for the Tour of Catalonia after ceding over 25 minutes to leader Alejandro Valverde during the sixth stage on Saturday. A group attack that included Valverde's Movistar broke away early and left Froome behind in the peloton. The three-time Tour de France winner, who entered the stage second in the classification at 21 seconds behind Valverde, was unable to close the gap and faded the rest of the way.

Cycling: Impey wins stage six in Catalonia, Froome out of contention (Reuters)

South African Daryl Impey won the sixth stage of the Tour of Catalonia as Chris Froome fell out of contention after being trapped on the wrong side of a peloton split on Saturday. Italians Alessandro De Marchi and Dario Cataldo looked set to contest a two-man sprint after jumping away from the leading group 15km from the end but they were reined in within 50 meters of the line as Orica Scott's Impey surged ahead. Spain's Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) took second place ahead of French champion Arthur Vichot (FDJ) to extend his overall lead while Team Sky's Froome, who started the day in second place, lost more than 20 minutes.

(Reuters) - Bradley Wiggins has described allegations that he may have broken anti-doping rules while with Team Sky as "the worst thing to be accused of" and said he would "shock a few people" when he eventually got the chance to defend himself. Team Sky have come under the microscope in recent months after a UK Anti-Doping investigation was launched into a package ordered by former team doctor Richard Freeman and delivered to Wiggins at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine race. Wiggins, a five-time Olympic champion and the 2012 Tour de France winner, welcomed the investigation in an interview with Sky Sports' Soccer AM program.
