Here is a recap of the Stage 13 action from SB Nation's cycling blog, Podium Cafe:

Andre Greipel of Lotto Belisol led the charge past the Team Sky train and held off LIquigas' Peter Sagan for his third stage victory at the Tour de France. Greipel sat on Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen and masterfully timed his acceleration on the very fast finishing slope, charging straight down the center of the road and beating Sagan, on his right, by half a wheel. Boasson Hagen, who was doing sprinters' duties for Mark Cavendish after the World Champion dropped off the pace and receiving some support as thanks for all he's done in service of the team, could do little to stay with the top sprinting duo to the line, despite his team's support.
