Schleck and Contador share the spoils on Tourmalet

Andy Schleck Tour de France

Andy Schleck tried with all he had to ride Alberto Contador out of the yellow jersey on the final climb of the 2010 Tour de France but he could not ride his rival off his wheel. They distanced all their rivals and crossed the line with Contador graciously avoiding to contest the sprint after following Schleck all the way on the climb, fending off all attacks.

Contador now seems all but certain to take the jersey to Paris and Schleck created a comfortable margin to stay in second after the long timetrial. Results after the flip:
