LAVAUR, France (AP) Mark Cavendish of Britain has won a rainy 11th stage of the Tour de France in a mass sprint, easily beating Andre Greipel of Germany on the line.

French rider Thomas Voeckler kept the race leader's yellow jersey after the 104-mile trek from Blaye-les-Mines to Lavaur.

It was Cavendish's 18th stage win on the Tour de France, his third in this year's race.

The 12th stage Thursday takes the riders on the first of a three-day route across the Pyrenees with a punishing 131-mile journey over the legendary col du Tourmalet and finishing on top of Luz-Ardiden.
