2011 Tour de France Standings Update, Stage 14: Thomas Voeckler Remains In Yellow

The Tour de France heads back to flat land on Sunday after three days in the mountains. Stage 15 is for the sprinters, and comes before a rest day leading up to the final mountain stages that will decide the 2011 Tour de France now. As it stands, Thomas Voeckler is in the yellow jersey, with many wondering when he'll fade and relinquish his lead. It hasn't happened yet, and barring a disaster Voeckler will be in yellow for at least two more days -- Sunday's flat stage and Monday's rest day.

Stage 14 saw no major changes in the general classification, a surprise to many who expected the contenders to make a move in the final Pyrenees stage. Voeckler kept his lead, with Alberto Cantador, Cadel Evans and Andy Schleck all staying on each other's wheels until near the finish line. Schleck did break away momentarily near the end, taking two more seconds from Contador.

Here is the general classification ahead of Stage 15.
