Rodez to Revel – 196 km
10:35 AM EDT
Today’s stage started at 12:48 PM CUT | 6:48 AM EDT.
Here’s where we are now:
This morning before the stage began letour.fr officials did a survey of the teams. They asked all ‘directeurs de sportifs’, “Which two riders from your team do you think will be in an escape today?”
Yesterday I published this, on that.
Today’s breakaway includes 3 riders, right now only 16 second ahead at the foot of the Category 3 Côte de Saint-Ferréol 7.5 degree 1.9 km climb – they will be eaten shortly.
For the record here are the names of ‘the dead’
They are no more, the Peloton is of the one.
Vinokourov and Veockler are attempting to leave the commons! Now they have left each other, Vinokourov is going for the line all by himself! It still very close, only 16 seconds separates the leader and the Peloton – 2.6 km to go!
Alexandre Vinokourov has pulled it off, he’s going to win – now 18 second to the pack inside the last km!!
Alexandre Vinokourov is in Yellow!
34. Ryder Hesjedal + 00:13
53. Michaël Barry + 00′ 13″
