Stage: The 13th stage took riders on a 196-kilometer (121.8-mile) course from Rodez to Revel, over five low-level climbs.
Winner: Alexandre Vinokourov of Kazakhstan in a solo breakaway. He clocked 4 hours, 26 minutes, 26 seconds. Mark Cavendish of Britain was second, Alessandro Petacchi of Italy was third _ 13 seconds behind along with the main pack.
Yellow Jersey: Andy Schleck of Luxembourg kept the yellow jersey. He holds a 31-second lead over defending champion Alberto Contador. Spanish rider Samuel Sanchez is 2:45 back in third.
Quote of the Day: "I showed I worked hard in these two years." _ Vinokourov, following his first Tour stage win since he was booted out of the 2007 race for doping.
Next stage: The 184.5-kilometer (114.65-mile) ride from Revel to the ski station of Ax-3 Domaines leads riders up two extreme climbs, first the Port de Pailheres _ one of the toughest ascents in cycling _ and an uphill finish. It's the first of four punishing mountain stages in the Pyrenees.
