Norwegian rider Thor Hushovd wins stage 16 of the Tour de France.

Thor Hushovd has claimed victory in stage 16 of the Tour de France.

The Norwegian beat fellow countryman Edvald Boasson Hagen to claim his second stage victory of this year's race.

The 162.5km Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Gap ride was also notable for tour contender Andy Schleck's loss of over a minute on race leader Thomas Voeckler, leaving him 3:03 behind the Frenchman.

British cyclist Mark Cavendish remains top of the sprint standings despite failing to pick up any points on stage 16.
