Palm Pro Cycling took a joint stage win yesterday by picking the winner, and went one better today by picking both Voeckler and Chris Anker Sørensen to take a solo stage win. In two stages, Palm Pro has rocketed from 66th on GC to 11th, and is now within striking distance of the lead.

At the top of the GC, wannabe_scattista drew a blank today, but still holds the casquette jaune. However, the challengers are much closer, foremost among them dallsopp and tgartner thanks to their points today from Voeckler.

In the mountains competition, straw dog (that's me) now leads thanks to points from Sørensen. With one stage to go, the closest challenger is wannabe_scattista, but dallsopp is also a major threat with "queen stage" card still to play.
