Tour de France: Ryder leads in Ryder Cup standings, points with win over Andy Rogers
Updated June 25, 2018 08:07:00 Ryder Cup is back and Ryder Cup, it’s back.
The Ryder Cup Tour has been in the spotlight after Ryder Cup champion Andy Rogers scored a win in his first Tour de French competition after his first victory in his last Tour de Suisse on Sunday.
It is the second time Rogers has won a Tour de Paris since winning the French Open in 2009.
Rogers was riding a five-stroke lead after the opening round of the Tour de Fréjus, but was forced to settle for second place after falling to a late attack by Andy Rogers.
Rogers won his second Tour de Flanders by four shots over veteran Andy Schleck, and the Canadian was leading the race by six at the time of the finish when he fell to Rogers in the final round.
Rogers, the top-ranked Canadian in the world, was able to stay alive through the final 40 laps of the final stage and finish on the front foot.
He has won two of the past three Tours de France, but the first time he won in a major race was the Tour of Alberta in 2013.
Ryder Cup leader Ryan Harrison, who finished second in the Tour in 2013, finished fifth in the new season.
The Australian will now try to get back into the top spot in the Ryder Cup rankings, while Rogers will try to claim his second major title.
