URDAX, Spain -- Tony Martin broke away to win the second stage of the Tour of Basque Country on Tuesday, while overall leader Alberto Contador maintained his 14-second advantage. Ua Curry 4 Outlet . Martin was among seven cyclists who moved away from the peloton, with the German cyclist pulling ahead of a breakaway group that included Maxim Montfort and Jan Bakelandts just over 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) from the finish. "At 15 kilometres to go, we knew to try and win this race -- so I attacked the breakaway," said Martin, who won a leg that included four categorized climbs by 30 seconds in a time of 3 hours, 46 minutes, 17 seconds. Contador allowed the breakaways to ride out of sight as he stayed close to closest challenger Alejandro Valverde, who attempted to escape late in the 155.8-kilometre (99-mile) stage to no avail. "Alejandro attacked, and I would have done the same thing if I was in his situation," Contador said. "There were spots where you could go for it, but I was very attentive to respond." Contador, a former Tour de France champion, leads Valverde with an overall time of 7:51:54 for Tinkoff-Saxo. Michal Kwiatkowski of Poland is third -- 34 seconds off the pace. "It wasnt a day where moves were made, but where a lot of energy was spent," Contador said. Martins first victory of the season gave his Omega-Pharma Quick Step team its 20th stage win of the season. "This morning I was really motivated. Everybody wanted to try and go," Martin said. "It was the perfect situation. We collaborated really well with the other guys in the breakaway." The five-stage race continues on Wednesday with a 194.7-kilometre (120-mile) leg from Urdax to the Basque capital city of Vitoria. Under Armour Micro g Outlet .

The Philadelphia left fielder clubbed a tiebreaking, solo home run in the seventh inning, and the Phillies edged the Red Sox, 2-1, in the middle test of a three-game interleague series at Citizens Bank Park. http://www.outletunderarmourstore.com/cheap-ua-fat-tire-online.html . But that changed when he committed a five-minute major penalty and helped pave the way for a comeback by the Philadelphia Flyers. Vincent Lecavalier scored at 2:45 of overtime and the Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 5-4 victory on Sunday.ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Every year, the Detroit Lions head up to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers. Every year, they come home with another loss.Detroit has lost every time it has travelled to play Green Bay since 1991, 24 straight games. Some have been close, like a 16-13 overtime loss in 2005. Some have been have been blowouts, like a 40-14 setback in 2002. But theyve all been losses.When asked to reminisce about what he was doing they last time the Lions won in Green Bay, Matthew Stafford said, I was probably still sucking my thumb.Darryl Tapp said he was, probably chilling somewhere, drinking a juice box.The Lions, who have clinched a spot in the playoffs, will cap off the regular season Sunday in Green Bay with a chance to finally end the lengthy losing streak.This is a whole different group from any other group that has been there, Tapp said. Yeah, theres a stigma about (Lambeau Field). Its a hard place to play, but we take each task as it is. Winning this game is the only thing were really worried about.Jim Caldwell said there are certain negative streaks associated with every program. He remembers answering questions about the Colts inability to win in the state of Florida.Those things dont concern him.Theyre great narratives for (media and fans), but they dont mean a whole lot to us, Caldwell said. What matters is getting ready for this game, focusing in on this game and going in and doing your job.We approach it like we do any other game. Its not the Super Bowl, so you have to look at it for what it is and go out and play well.Although Caldwell preaches the one-game-at-a-time mentality, this one will mean a little more for him. Caldwell grew up in Beloit, Wisconsin and will have plenty of family and friends at the game.Quite a few of them are asking for tickets, but just like when they came here for the game, I might have to lift up their shirt to make certain theres not a Packers shirt underneath, Caldwell said. I do have some die-hard Packers fans in my family. Buy Under Armour Wholesale. ot only can the Lions snap the skid with a win. They can also claim their first divisional title since 1993 and a first-round bye.Im excited to go on the road and get another win, Ndamukong Suh said. I dont really care if its in Lambeau or Chicago or Minnesota we go each and every one of those places every year. We should be used to it by now. We have to deal with the elements as they come.The Packers are one of just three teams in the NFL, along with New England and Denver, with a perfect home record this season. Green Bay has outscored opponents by an average of nearly 21 points at Lambeau Field, with all but two games decided by a touchdown or more.But Detroit, which can post its first winning record in road games since 2011 with a victory Sunday, and the players say they are up for the challenge.Since I have been here, its the best defence we have had, no question, Stafford said. Any time you can go on the road with a defence like we have, it gives you a chance to win. And we have belief in each other. We have done it time and time again, whether it be at home or on the road. We won over in London, overseas. It doesnt matter where we play, we just want to go play.Stafford will have one big offensive hurdle to overcome Sunday. His centre, Dominic Raiola, will be sidelined after the league suspended him for an incident in Sundays win over Chicago.Travis Swanson will take over for Raiola. Stafford says it shouldnt be too much of a problem because he and Swanson take reps together every Wednesday and Thursday during practice.Raiola is a very intelligent player. Obviously, he has 14 years of experience under his belt. You cant replace that with a guy thats young, Stafford said. But Swanson has gotten a chance to learn under Dom for quite some time now . and he has a bunch of that knowledge stored up from this year. Ill do everything I can to help him.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
