2-time winner Contador drops out of Tour de France


PLANCHER-LES-MINES, France (AP) — Two-time champion Alberto Contador has dropped out of the Tour de France after crashing during Stage 10 in the Vosges mountains.

The 31-year-old Spaniard with Tinkoff-Saxo Bank becomes the second big favorite to drop out this year after defending champion Chris Froome of Britain crashed out in Stage 5.

Contador began the stage in 4:08 back of race leader Tony Gallopin of France, in ninth place overall.
