Tour de France Stage 19: Post-Stage Thread

Tour-post-stage-sm_mediumNot much happening today, except for a late attack by the world champion, Alessandro Ballan, who chased down Laurent Lefevre and finally -- after missing much of the year -- showed the rainbow jersey to the world. Lefevre and Ballan dangled just off the front until the last km, when it turned into a bunch sprint, with the predictable result.

  1. Mark Cavendish, Columbia
  2. Thor Hushovd, Cervelo, s.t.
  3. Gerald Ciolek, Milram, s.t.
  4. Greg Van Avermaet, Silence, s.t.
  5. Oscar Freire, Rabobank, s.t.

Yukia Arashiro in the top ten! Not a day for GC changes... UPDATE! Lance gets 4 seconds!! Sneaky little bugger. There was a split after the first dozen riders.
