Arvesen sprints for stage win, Evans stays in yellow

Latest update : 2008-07-17

Champion of Norway Kurt-Asle Arvesen (CSC Team) was the fastest among the leading men who fought for the final sprint of the Tour's 11th stage finish line in Foix. Australia's Cadel Evans keeps his yellow jersey.

 


Kurt-Asle Arvesen of Norway, riding for CSC, won the 11th stage of the Tour de France here on Wednesday, 167.5km of racing between Lannemezan and here, crossing the line in 3hr 58min 13sec in a sprint finish.
  
Australian Cadel Evans retained the leader's yellow jersey after Arvesen edged out Swiss rider Martin Elmiger and Alessandro Ballan of Italy as the 33-year-old gave his team their first triumph of this year's edition.
  
Evans, riding for Silence, came in with the peloton some 15 minutes behind the leading group but that was enough to stay on top of the pile while Arvesen, junior world champion in 1997, scored his first stage win in the event, having previously netted two Giro stages in Italy.
