Defending champion Chris Froome made up for some lost time at the Tour de France Monday although Team Sky narrowly missed out on victory in the third stage, a 35.5-kilometer team time trial won by American outfit BMC Racing.BMC clocked 38 minutes, 46 seconds as their Belgian rider Greg van Avermaet took the overall leader's yellow jersey, with Sky in second place 4 seconds behind.Overall, Froome is in 18th place, 55 seconds off the pace and still 44 behind 2017 Giro d'Italia winner Dutchman Tom Dumoulin, who with Team Sunweb only lost seven seconds to the Briton Monday.Australian Richie Porte, who had also lost 51 seconds in the first stage after being delayed behind a pile-up, benefited from his BMC team's performance to move up to 14th, four seconds ahead of Froome.
