Race leader Michael Matthews took his second stage victory at this year's Paris-Nice after Frenchman Nacer Bouhanni was disqualified from Tuesday's sprint finish.Australian Matthews was blocked in by Bouhanni, who swerved wildly towards the Orica GreenEdge rider just 20 yards from the line.The 25-year-old Matthews, the race leader who also won Sunday's opening prologue, looked set to storm past the Cofidis rider down the inside before Bouhanni leant into the Aussie, practically pushing him into the side railing.Matthews now leads Dutchman Tom Dumoulin by 14 seconds in the overall standings with New Zealander Patrick Bevin third at 19 seconds, the same time as Team Sky's Geraint Thomas, one of the favorites for the final victory.
