Hushovd stages surprise attack to win mountain stage at Tour de France

The Tour de France stayed in the mountains for Stage 13, but today’s climbs didn’t generate as much turbulence as Thursday’s stage.

Thor Hushovd (Norway) of Team Garmin-Cevelo staged a surprising attack at the base of the Col d’Aubisque and was able to stay ahead of the peloton for the rest of the day. And once near the finish in Lourdes, he overtook Frenchman David Moncoutie for the stage win.

That surprise aside, the yellow jersey remains with Thomas Voeckler,  but some well known riders dropped out of the race due to injuries. Find out who abandoned the race and get the latest on Frank Schleck, Cadel Evans, Ivan Basso, Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador at the Tour de France website. Read more about today’s stage and the overall standings.
