Alberto Contador wins Tour de France again
PARIS: Alberto Contador earned his second Tour de France victory after seeing out the 21st and final stage, won in stunning style by Manxman Mark Cavendish.
Spaniard Contador held off Luxembourg''s Andy Schleck with American Lance Armstrong edging out Bradley Wiggins.
Wiggins equalled the best Tour finish by a Briton with his fourth place matching Robert Millar in 1984.
Cavendish''s win was his sixth of the 2009 Tour and he became the first Briton to win on the Champs Elysees.
The 24-year-old, who now has 10 Tour stage wins to his name, was an easy winner in Paris.
After almost 3,500km of racing over 21 stages in three weeks, Sunday''s stage was a victory parade for Contador, who toasted his win with champagne as the peloton rode into Paris.
