LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wildfires burned out of control Saturday in mountains north of Los Angeles and near Big Sur on California's scenic Central Coast, posing a threat to 2,000 homes and a sanctuary for exotic animals that was being evacuated, authorities said.
As Chris Froome all but secured a third Tour de France title on Saturday, thoughts turned to the last rider to establish a Tour dynasty: Miguel Indurain. Although Lance Armstrong won seven successive Tours, his results have been stripped from the record books over doping, leaving Indurain as the last rider to have enjoyed a dynasty, winning five Tours from 1991-1995. By seeing off all comers this year, Froome also becomes the first rider since Indurain to win back-to-back titles, having triumphed last year and in 2013.
