Tour de France leader Chris Froome has slammed rival Alberto Contador after claiming the Spaniard used "dangerous" tactics in a bid to loosen his grip on the yellow jersey. 

Overall leader's yellow jersey Britain's Chris Froome (C) rides behind Spain's Alberto Contador (R) during the 168 km sixteenth stage of the 100th edition of the Tour de France cycling race on July 16, 2013 between Vaison-la-Romaine and Gap, southeastern France.

Froome came over the finish of the 168 km 16th stage over 11 minutes behind winner Rui Costa of Movistar to maintain his 4min 14sec lead over Dutchman Bauke Mollema and his 4:25 cushion on former two-time winner Contador.
