Madrid - Spanish cyclist Alberto Contador has apologised for the way he took over the lead in the Tour de France from rival Andy Schleck.

"Chaingate"

In Monday's stage, Schleck's chain came off and Contador kept riding, rather than waiting in accordance with race etiquette.

In a video posted on YouTube, Contador said "Maybe I made a mistake. I'm sorry. I don't like things like what happened today(Monday), I'm not like that and I hope the relationship that I have with Andy can go back to being as good as it was before this happened."

Contador initially insisted he hadn't seen that Schleck had a problem.

The tour continues on Tuesday with the 16th stage.
