Germany’s Andre Greipel wins Tour de France 13th stage

PanARMENIAN.Net - Andre Greipel of Germany led a photo-finish sprint to win the 13th stage of the Tour de France on Saturday, July 14 while Britain's Bradley Wiggins retained the overall leader's yellow jersey as the race headed south to the Mediterranean, AP reports.

The windy and flat 134.8-mile run with one major climb from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Le Cap d'Agde was tailored for a win by one of the race's sprinters.

Greipel, who turns 30 on Monday, earned his third stage victory of this year's Tour after winning the fourth and fifth stages in sprint finishes. Still-photo imagery showed that he won by half a wheel's length ahead of Slovakian rider Peter Sagan.

Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway was third.

Sunday's 14th stage takes riders along two big climbs over a 118-mile trek from Limoux to Foix.
