GAP, France (AP) Thor Hushovd of Norway led a three-man breakaway to win a rainy 16th stage of the Tour de France on Tuesday, while French rider Thomas Voeckler appeared to keep the race leader's yellow jersey.

The main title contenders were trailing several minutes behind.

Three-time champion Alberto Contador attacked in the final climb of the 101-mile route from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Gap. It's likely he'll gain some time in his quest for the title.
