Voeckler leads Tour starting 10th stage

Frenchman Thomas Voeckler wore the yellow jersey as riders started Tuesday's 10th stage of the Tour de France.
The 158-kilometer (98-mile) trek from Aurillac to Carmaux favors sprinters such as Britain's Mark Cavendish, who is aiming for his third stage win of the Tour.
The pack was two riders lighter, with Yaroslav Popovych out with a fever, and Alexandr Kolobnev, who tested positive for a banned diuretic on Monday's rest day.
Riders have another flat stage on Wednesday before hitting the Pyrenees on Thursday, where defending champion Alberto Contador may look to attack his main rival Andy Schleck.
