Tour de France remains open after Plateau de Beille

Andy Schleck attacks, Tour de France 2011, stage 14

Andy Schleck attacked multiple times in the Tour de France's Plateau de Beille stage today, but he failed to distance his key rivals. Belgian Jelle Vanendert won the stage, and Schleck finished nearly a minute back with brother, Fränk, Cadel Evans, Ivan Basso and last year's winner, Alberto Contador.

"Alberto's strong, in my opinion, he'll wait until the Alps," Schleck told Cycling Weekly at the finish line. "For me, Ivan is the strongest."
