No change yet again as Tour de France ends week two

6:33 am on 18 July 2011

There was no change among the leaders on the 15th stage of the tour de France which gave the British rider Mark Cavendish his fourth stage win.

Cavendish tightened his grip on the sprinters green jersey, crossing the line at the end of a wind-battered ride half a bike length ahead of the American Tayler Farrar, with Alessandro Pettacchi third.

Frenchman Thomas Voeckler remains the overall leader 1min 49 seconds ahead of Frank Schleck with Cadel Evans still third at 2:06.

Andy Schleck is a further nine seconds back in fourth place while the defending champion Alberto Contador stays seventh, four minutes behind Voeckler.

The tour has another rest day tonight.
