MAUBOURGUET, France (AP) -- Tour de France riders are heading northward on a mostly flat Stage 19 that's likely to end in a bunch sprint. The 129-mile trek gives sprinters another chance to shine after slogging it through three days in the Pyrenees (PIHR'-eh-neez).

Vincenzo Nibali of Italy won yesterday's 18th stage and remains the overall leader. He leads his closest rival by more than seven minutes.

The Tour de France comes to an end this Sunday in Paris.
