Leopard-Trek's Andy Schleck of Luxembourg prepares for the start of the 19th stage of the Tour de France 2011 cycling race from Modane to Alpe d'Huez July 22, 2011.

Luxembourg's Andy Schleck snatched the Tour's yellow jersey from Thomas Voeckler with two days remaining, as Pierre Rolland became the first Frenchman to win a stage in this year's edition.

Voeckler began the day with a narrow 15-second lead but ended it trailing by two minutes 10 seconds.

With Saturday's 42.5km time trial to come before the ride into Paris, Schleck leads his brother Frank by 53 seconds with Australian Cadel Evans 57 seconds back.

"Schleck, Schleck, Evans to be one and two, two days before Paris, what more can you ask for?" Andy Schleck said.

"Cadel is about a minute adrift. It's a lot. And the yellow jersey will give me wings.

"After 20 days of racing, a time trial is not the same. Cadel is as tired as the rest of us. I might lose the jersey, but I will give it my all," he added.
