Chris Froome kept the leader's yellow jersey despite breaking a wheel as Bauke Mollema won the 15th stage of the Tour de France Sunday in a solo breakaway.With Romain Bardet's AG2R team pushing the pace, a mad 20-kilometer chase ensued as Mikel Nieve, Vasil Kiryienka and Sergio Henao helped pace Froome back to the group, and the three-time champion made contact 3 kilometers before the summit of the first-category Col de Peyra Taillade, just over 30 kilometers from the finish.The 32-year-old Briton crossed the line alongside most of his main rivals to maintain his 18-second lead over Italian Fabio Aru, with Romain Bardet of France third at 23 seconds and Colombia's Rigoberto Uran fourth at 29 seconds.The 30-year-old even snatched a place in the standings, moving above Landa into fifth, now 1 minute, 12 seconds behind Froome.
