ANNECY, France (AP) - Alberto Contador has won the final time trial in the Tour De France, and Lance Armstrong moved up a spot to third place overall.

Contador now looks all but assured of his second tour victory after increasing his overall lead in Thursday's 18th stage. The riders went one by one down the start ramp for the 25-mile stage in and around Annecy.

The three-week race ends Sunday.
