American Levi Leipheimer is out of the Tour de France after breaking his right wrist during a crash in Thursday’s Stage Twelve. The fall came late in the 131-mile race from Tonnerre to Vittel. Leipheimer finished but was unable to start Friday’s Stage Thirteen. His Astana Team Director Johan Bruyneel said the absence of Leipheimer gives other teams an advantage. “It makes us weaker and will obviously motivate other teams to attack,” Bruyneel said.
