|NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES Blaise Matuidi France Maillot , France, July 7 (Xinhua) -- It was all about the 213.5km stage for a 0.0003 second finish.
Things could not be more dramatic than that as German rider Marcel Kittel took that advantage to secure his record-equalling 12th stage victory at Tour de France, the world's most prestigious road cycling tournaments.
After finishing a back-to-back title winning in the past two flat stages here on Friday N'Golo Kante France Maillot , Kittel has equalled Erik Zabel in the most stage victories by a German rider. It was his third win in this year's tournament.
Four riders had a breakaway after the start of the 213.5km stage from Troyes to Nuits-Saint-Georges, but they were finally caught by the peloton with six kilometers remaining.
Kittel was not quite sure about his stage win after he almost crossed the finish line head-to-head with Norweigen Edvald Boasson Hagen, before that was confimed by the photo finish. Perhaps nothing could tell more about the stage than the 0.0003-second gap.
"It's definitely the closest win I've ever had in my career Corentin Tolisso France Maillot ," said the 29-year-old Kittel.
With 50 sprint points from the top finish, the Quick-Step rider also got back the sprinters' green jersey from the Frenchman Arnaud Demare. Coming from a 27-point deficit, Kittel built a 15-point lead against Demare.
British Christopher Froome had another comfortable day with a 12-second gap over his Sky teammate Geraint Thomas to wear the yellow jersey.
Italian Fabio Aru sat on third after trailing Froome by 14 seconds Kylian Mbappe France Maillot , and possessed the polkadot king of the mountains jersey.
The best young rider was still Simon Yates, who led by 24 seconds. Team Sky faced little challenge for their top position on overall team standings.
Riders prepared to embreace the challenges from mountain stages in Jura and Alps this weekend. For Froome, the results from this weekend might make a big difference.
"In terms of my rivals Ousmane Dembele France Maillot , Fabio Aru is threatening," he commented.
Saturday's 187.5-kilometer eighth stage will start from Dole and finish at the Rousses ski station in Jura, and riders have to experience a 11.7km uphill road with an average gradient of 6.4% before the finish.

WELLINGTON， Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- The thriving tourism sector and a recent rebound in dairy prices have boosted business confidence in New Zealand， according to a survey by an independent economic think-tank on Friday.
A net 26 percent of firms expected improved economic conditions over the coming months， particularly in dairy-intensive regions， according to the Quarterly Survey of Business Opinion from the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER).
But confidence remained strongest in tourism-intensive regions， NZIER senior economist Christina Leung said in a statement.
"Firms are also expecting a strong lift in demand in their own business， with a net 32 percent expecting an improvement in own trading activity over the next quarter， the highest level since mid-2014，" said Leung.
Confidence in the building sector had been boosted by a strong pipeline of residential and commercial construction work.
"Rapid population growth has boosted demand for housing and new office buildings， and firms expect a further ramp-up in building activity over the next few years，" she said.
Despite the high levels of activity， capacity utilization and pricing indicators in the building sector had eased.
Hiring over the past quarter had also eased， in contrast to the surge in hiring intentions for the next quarter.
A net 27 percent of firms were looking to increase headcount in the next quarter， the highest level for 43 years.
Firms report increased difficulty in finding labor， and this might have limited the extent to which firms could increase headcount over the past quarter.
The difficulty in finding labor was particularly acute for skilled labor， with shortages at levels not seen since December 2007.
