Barguil wins Stage 13A day after Froome showed a sign of weakness, Team Sky sent Spain's Mikel Landa in front when twice champion Alberto Contador attacked early on.Aru leads Froome by 6 seconds overall with last year's runner-up Bardet in third place, 25 seconds behind the race leader and Colombian Rigoberto Uran in fourth, a further 10 seconds back.Landa is now fifth, 1:09 behind Aru, and Team Sky's management will need to make clear who the leader is after the Spaniard, whose contract expires at the end of the year, finished ahead of Froome Thursday.Froome appeared to struggle in the last of three climbs in the punchy 101-kilometer stage, but he still managed to attack his rivals in the final part of the Mur de Peguere, a punishing 9.3-kilometer ascent at an average gradient of 7.9 percent.
