GIRONA, Spain -- Slovenian cyclist Luka Mezgec followed up an opening day victory by winning the second leg of the Volta a Catalunya on Tuesday to keep the overall lead. The Giant-Shimano cyclist beat Italian pair Roberto Ferrari and Daniele Ratto in a sprint finish to win in a time of 3 hours, 57 minutes, 49 seconds. Mezgec leads Ferrari by 14 seconds overall with a time of 8:06:42 as cyclists endured rain and cold weather during a 168-kilometre (104-mile) run. With the seven-stage race heading toward the Pyrenees mountains next, Mezgec is not expected to hang on to the lead in a field that includes Tour de France champion Christopher Froome and Alberto Contador. They both finished three seconds back on Tuesday to trail Mezgec by 23 seconds after two stages. Froome was cautious about his chances as he settles back into competing after pulling out of the preceding Tirreno-Adriatico with back injury. "If I see Im progressing well and I dont feel hurt then I think I can achieve something here," Froome said. "I have to take into account I lost two training days and the injury kept me from training as strongly as I wanted for another five days." Wednesdays leg is a 163-kilometre run from Banyoles to La Molina, featuring two long mountain climbs -- one of them at the end of the stage. Conor Sheary Jersey . The closer wasnt available.

Jake Guentzel Jersey .J. -- John Elway says Peyton Manning cannot stamp himself as the greatest quarterback in NFL history even if he wins the Super Bowl on Sunday.The red-hot Toronto Raptors have the best record in the Eastern Conference and are on pace to be the best team in franchise history, but theyve enjoyed much of their early success at home. Theyre about to see just how well they can handle a lengthy and challenging road trip. Prior to heading out west, the Raptors look for a bit of revenge against one of the few teams to beat them north of the border as they kick off their trip tonight against the Chicago Bulls. The Raptors (22-6) have won 20 games before Christmas for the first time in team history, are primed to blow past last seasons franchise-best 48-win mark and on Monday can win their seventh in a row - which would stand as Torontos longest win streak since a nine-game run late in the 2001-02 season. Any impending success, however, will have to take place on the road. The Raptors stop in Chicago marks the start of a season-high six-game trip after theyve played an NBA-high 17 home games so far. Im ready for it, coach Dwane Casey told the teams official website. Ive been preaching it, and we should be ready for it. Everyone is all excited. The Bulls (17-9) are the first of four opponents on this trip with a winning percentage of at least .654. Each of the Raptors victories during this streak has come against teams with sub-.500 records, including a 118-108 win over New York on Sunday. Its important that we play good teams because its really going to test our character, said Greivis Vasquez, who scored 21 points and joined Kyle Lowry and Lou Williams (22 each) with 20-plus. We havent really faced adversity and everythinng right now is great, but I think were ready for a couple of premium tests.dddddddddddd Even without DeMar DeRozan since Nov. 30, the Raptors have managed to lead the NBA in points per 100 possessions (113.1) in December. Chicago managed to disrupt Torontos offense at the Air Canada Centre on Nov. 13, holding the Raptors to a season-worst 39.3 percent mark from the field in a 100-93 win. Pau Gasol led the way with 27 points and 11 rebounds while Jimmy Butler added 21 points, nine boards and six assists. The Bulls are 13-2 when they hold opponents to fewer than 100 points - a feat theyve accomplished in each of their last four games, most recently in a 103-97 win at Memphis on Friday. After scoring a career-high 35 in a victory over New York on Thursday, Butler followed it with 31 and 10 rebounds against the Grizzlies. Jimmy, every time that game was hanging in the balance he came through with a big play for us, coach Tom Thibodeau told the Bulls official website. Clutch play after clutch play. Great defense. No possessions off. Plays were great. Intensity was great. Great concentration. You cant say enough about what he does. Huge, huge. Butler helped the Bulls get by Friday without Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson, both of whom are expected to return Monday. Rose, who had 13 second-half points in the first meeting with Toronto, has missed the last two games with an illness, while Gibson sat out both with a right ankle injury. The Bulls have lost their last three home games against the Raptors - all without Rose - while being held to an average of 84.7 points.
