Contador takes over Tour de France lead

BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France (AP) - Andy Schleck has lost the overall lead in the Tour de France to defending champion Alberto Contador.

Thomas Voeckler was the winner of the 15th stage in a time of 4 hours, 44 minutes, 51 seconds.

The stage covered the 116.5-mile course from Pamiers to Bagneres-de-Luchon.

Schleck had to stop near the top of the final climb when his chain came off. Contador had been right behind him and shot past, gaining a lead while his rival from Luxembourg put his chain back on.
