The native of Kazakhstan broke free of the pack with 20 kilometers left, to win the stage. Julich, some seven-plus minutes back of Kashechkin, finished 71st in the stage and is 43rd overall going into today’s finish into Nice.Julich is expected to participate today.

On the other side of the world. Glenwood resident Bill Pinkham continues toward the finish line of the Iditarod sled dog race in Alaska. Down to a team of 12 sled dogs, Pinkham has slipped to 48th place after the 112-mile stretch from Cripple to the Ruby checkpoint.Pinkham and his team of dogs have traveled 615 miles and are 497 miles away from the finish line in Nome.
