Post-Race Show! Stage 16: Cuneo-Jausiers

Here are today's stage results and the new general classification.

Some stuff happened today at the Tour. Two mountains of unusual size were climbed. The highest road in Europe was ridden. Some of the kids went faster than the other kids. Suffering was had. Time was lost. Somebody won.

Classifications. Cyril Dessel of AG2R takes today his first ever Tour de France stage. The yellow (Schleck), spotted (Kohl), and green (Freire) jerseys all remain unchanged today. In the general, Christian Vandevelde of Team Garmin lost time, falling to sixth overall at 3.15, while Denis Menchov of Raboank lost 30 seconds and currently sits 5th at 1.15. The top four in the general remains unchanged. Andy Schleck of CSC-Saxo Bank takes over the lead in the white jersey classification by 6 seconds over Vincenzo Nibali of Team Liquigas. Roman Kreuziger holds 3rd at 50 seconds, while Maxim Monfort, who gained time on today's climbing stage, remains 4th at 2.18.

Tomorrow? The classic Galibier-Alpe D'Huez Combo!
