Schleck behind after Tourmalet duel, but refuses to give up

Andy Schleck and Alberto Contador, Tour de France 2010, stage 17

Luxembourg's Andy Schleck topped the Tour de France's Col du Tourmalet for the stage win today, but he still trails in the overall standing to Spain's Alberto Contador by eight seconds. Only three days and a long time trial remain for Schleck to win the Tour, but he refuses to give in.

"I can see the yellow jersey in front of me," team Saxo Bank's Schleck said. "I really want it and I am not going to give up until Paris."
