Overall race leader Michael Rasmussen won the 16th stage of the Tour de France, a 218.5-km ride from Orthez on Wednesday.

The Danish Rabobank rider beat Discovery Channel's Levi Leipheimer of the United States to retain the yellow jersey.

Spaniard Alberto Contador, also of the Discovery channel team, came home third.

The start of the stage was delayed by 10 minutes after riders from the six French and two German teams protested against doping in the sport, one day after it was announced Alexander Vinokourov has tested positive for blood-doping.
