Contador claims 3rd Tour

Spaniard Alberto Contador claimed his third Tour de France title yesterday.

The 27-year-old Contador stayed safe in the main bunch and the last stage — over 102.5 kilometers from Longjumeau to Paris — went to Mark Cavendish for the second year in a row.

Contador almost cracked in the final time trial but held off Andy Schleck for the yellow jersey.
