2011 Tour De France, Stage Thirteen Results: Thor Hushovd Dominates, Thomas Voeckler Retains Yellow Jersey

The 2011 Tour de France continued through the Pyrenees Mountains on Friday and Thor Hushovd dominated much of the field on the descent of Col d'Aubisque in earning his ninth career Tour stage victory. Much of the general classification finished together at 7:37 back of Hushovd as the top of the yellow jersey standings remained the same. Thomas Voeckler continues to wear the yellow jersey while Mark Cavendish retains the green jersey. Jeremy Roy surged from third to first in the polka dot climbing jersey with a third place stage finish.

The 13th stage saw Team RadioShack lose Andreas Kloden as he officially dropped out with his injuries. That leaves Haimar Zubeldia and Santa Rosa-based Levi Leipheimer as the top two members on the team. Zubeldia is 7:17 back and Leipheimer is 7:51 back. It's unlikely either will make it to the podium in Paris, but for now they remain in 15th and 17th place, respectively.

Here are the yellow jersey standings after thirteen stages:
