Neck to neck in the 10th

The leading men of the 10th stage of the Tour de France — including Italy's Marco Marcato, France's Anthony Delaplace and France's Arthur Vichot — start their breakaway on July 12 in the 158-kilometer (98.2-mile) course between Aurillac, in south central France, and Carmaux. The annual bicycle race, which has taken place almost every summer since 1903, draws millions of enthusiasts every year who line the side of roads to get the best view.  (Photo: Joel Sagat/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images)
