PAU, France (AP) - Seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong provided some excitement during the 16th stage of this year's race. France's Pierrick Fedrigo won a sprint finish in a group of nine that included Armstrong, who had attacked repeatedly from the very beginning of the 16th stage. The American finished sixth.
There was no change in the overall standings in the race. Alberto Contador of Spain still owns the yellow jersey, followed by Andy Schleck of Luxembourg.
Following the race Armstrong admitted that his days as a competitive cyclist are almost over. He announced earlier this month that this would be his final Tour de France.
