Tour de France Glance

A brief look at Thursday's 11th stage of the Tour de France:
Stage: The 184.5-kilometer (114.6-mile) trek from Sisteron to Bourg-les-Valence was mostly flat but featured a mid-grade category 3 climb on Cabre pass.
Winner: British sprinter Mark Cavendish won his third stage this Tour _ and 13th in his Tour career _ in 4 hours, 42 minutes, 29 seconds. Alessandro Petacchi of Italy was second and U.S. rider Tyler Farrar was third.
Yellow Jersey: Andy Schleck of Luxembourg kept the yellow jersey and maintained his 41-second lead over defending champion Alberto Contador. Spanish rider Samuel Sanchez is 2:45 back in third.
Quote of the Day: "I'm really happy to win, the team did a great job" _ Cavendish, despite the ouster of his lead-out man on the HTC Columbia team, Mark Renshaw of Australia, from the race after head-butting a rival in the final sprint that cleared a path for the British stage winner and others.
Next stage: Friday's 12th stage features five mid-grade climbs on a 210.5-kilometer (130.8-mile) course from Bourg-de-Peage to Mende.
