Tour de France 2013 results, Stage 10: Marcel Kittel edges Andre Greipel in dramatic finish

Doug Pensinger

Marcel Kittel won his second stage on the Tour in a dramatic stretch run that included a crash and photo finish.

Germany's Marcel Kittel won Stage 10 of the 2013 Tour de France, edging fellow German Andre Greipel in a chaotic finish down the home stretch. It's his second stage victory of the Tour, having also won Stage 1.

Stage 10 moved away from the mountains and was a mostly flat 197-kilometer ride from Saint-Gildas-des-Bois to Saint-Malo. As a result, there was a massive glut of cyclists packed together sprinting towards the finish, with Kittel and Greipel neck-and-neck up front. Mark Cavendish was closely behind them, and ended up bumping an unknown rider, causing him to spin out.

The Tour de France's official Twitter feed has a picture of the dramatic finish, which shows Kittel edging Greipel by less than a tire length.

Current Tour leader Chris Froome finished 24th, just six seconds behind. He will retain the yellow jersey for another day.
