Reigning champion Alberto Contador also survived another onslaught in the mountains despite having a sore knee, the Spanish champion falling under constant attack on the 15.8 km climb to Plateau de Beille.
Belgian Jelle Vanendert took the victory after breaking away from the group with 7km's to go, and never looked back to claim his 1st ever Tour de France win, "Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd win a stage like this," said Vanendert.

"I don't think there's been one of my 19 wins that I've done alone, and that just shows the commitment those guys have towards me and I'm incredibly lucky for that," said Cavendish.
