Kazakhstan's Vinokourov holds off pack to win stage 13

Latest update : 2010-07-17

Team Astana's Alexandre Vinokourov has won the Tour's 13th stage, a 196km ride from Rodez to Revel, after bursting out of the pack with just 5km to go. Luxembourg's Andy Schleck holds on to the yellow jersey of the overall leader.

AP - Alexandre Vinokourov has won the 13th stage of the Tour de France in a breakaway as Andy Schleck of Luxembourg retained his half-minute lead over two-time champion Alberto Contador.

Vinokourov, a Kazakh rider who is back at the Tour after a doping ban, was fastest over five low-grade climbs during the 196-kilometer course from Rodez to Revel.

The top standings didn't change because the main contenders crossed in the same pack. Schleck is clinging to a 31-second lead over Contador.

The race enters the Pyrenees on Sunday, the first of four days of punishing climbs in the mountains that will play a key role in who wins the three-week race at the July 25 finish in Paris.
