PORTO-VECCHIO, France (AP) — Ben King retained the overall lead at the Criterium International after Fabio Felline and Bob Jungels secured a 1-2 finish for the Trek Factory Racing team in a short time trial on Saturday.

King won the 92.5-kilometer (57.5-kilometer) opening stage in the morning around Porto-Vecchio, after crossing the finish line five seconds ahead of breakaway rival Clement Saint-Martin.

The American rider then finished 19th on the seven-kilometer stage against the clock in the afternoon, 19 seconds behind Felline.

King holds a 24-second lead over Saint-Martin heading into Sunday’s final stage between Porto-Vecchio and the Col de l’Ospedale.
