A wet descent threw the race into chaos today allowing Sylvain Chavanel to win from a daylong break. Behind him several GC riders fought with all they had to avoid timelosses after the big crash. The Schleck-brothers managed to reconnect but the detante in the field cost Fabian Cancellara and Saxo Bank the leaders jersey. Peloton rode as a group across the line in protest of the dangerous road conditions under the watchful eye of Cancellara.

Result of the day:

  1. Sylvain Chavanel, QS
  2. Peloton
  3. Peloton
  4. Peloton
  5. Peloton
