Vinokourov wins stage with long breakaway
BRIANCON, France -- Alexandre Vinokourov won Wednesday's second Alpine stage of the Tour de France with a solo ascent over the race's highest climb, and Lance Armstrong's overall lead remained unchanged.
The win in the 11th stage was Vinokourov's second in five Tours. His first was in 2003.
The T-Mobile rider rebounded from a disastrous ride Tuesday on the first Alpine stage, when Armstrong surged ahead of the Kazakh rider and other main rivals to retake the overall lead.
