Frenchman Sylvain Chavanel claimed the leader's yellow jersey at the Tour de France on Monday after a gutsy ride in a second stage that witnessed a number of high-profile crashes.

Chavanel was part of an eight-man breakaway which formed in the early stages of the 201km ride from Brussels to the hilly Belgian Ardennes, and was left to go alone after Belgian Jurgen Roelandts ran out of steam.
