SAINT-MALO, France (AP) - Germany's Marcel Kittel won Tuesday's 10th stage of the Tour de France in a sprint finish and Chris Froome stayed out of trouble to keep the leader's yellow jersey.
Kittel held off countryman Andre Greipel and Mark Cavendish a dash to the line to win his second stage of the Tour.
The 122-mile flat route started from Saint-Gildas-Des-Bois in northwest France and finished in the walled port city of Saint-Malo, a tourist destination on the north coast of Brittany.
Froome was the Tour runner-up to British countryman Bradley Wiggins last year. He has a healthy lead over second-place Alejandro Valverde and two-time champion Alberto Contador and will look to extend it in Wednesday's time trial.
