Tour de France 2013 standings: Froome loses ground but retains lead

Doug Pensinger

After building his biggest lead of the Tour in Stage 12, the pack caught up a bit to Chris Froome.

Chris Froome lost about a minute off his lead in Stage 13 of the Tour de France on Friday, but he retained the yellow jacket for the sixth stage in a row and still holds a 2 1/2-minute lead with eight stages to go.

Froome finished the 173-kilometer Stage 13, a flat stage from Tours to Saint-Amand-Montrond, in three hours, 41 minutes and 17 seconds, one minute and nine seconds off the pace. Mark Cavendish won the stage in 3 hours, 40 minutes and eight seconds.

Bauke Mollema climbed one spot in the overall classification to second place, coming in at Stage 13 less than a second behind Cavendish. With six cyclists in the top 15, Team Saxo-Tinkoff took the team lead away from Movistar, which had held the lead for the past five stages.

The race resumes Saturday with Stage 14, a 191-kilometer medium-mountain stage from Saint-Pourcain-sur-Sioule to Lyon.
