German Marcel Kittel broke down in tears after winning his 10th Tour de France stage in Liege Sunday.Reigning champion Chris Froome suffered a scare on the 203.5 km second stage from Dusseldorf, crashing 30 km from the end, but he got up to finish safely in the peloton alongside race leader Geraint Thomas.Thomas seemed unscathed and maintained his five-second lead over Swiss Stefan Kung, although Kittel, who hit 69.19 kph in the sprint finish according to official Tour data, is now up to third overall at 6 seconds after taking a 10-second time bonus on the line.The third stage Monday is a lumpy one of more than 210 km with a short climb to the finish which will favor punchy riders rather than pure sprinters.
