Tour De France update
14th July - stage 10 - Chambéry - Gap 179 km.
It would have been good if the stage winner had been French, the day being Bastille Day, but it was not to be. Two breakaway riders contested the result. Sergio Paulinho (POR) from Team Radio Shack took the stage honours, by only a ¼ of a wheel from Vasil Kiryienka (BLR) Team GCE (Caisse d'Epargne).
There was little change in the overall positions, with Andy Schleck still wearing the yellow jersey, and Alberto Contador in second position.
15th July – Stage 11 - Sisteron -Bourg-lès-Valence 184.5 km
The stage win, after a sprint, went to Mark Cavendish from the Isle of Man and team HTC Columbia. Second was Alessandro Petacchi from Italy, of the Lampre team and third place went to Tyler Farrar from the USA team Garmin.
The yellow jersey positions remains pretty much the same with no major changes. The yellow jersey is still with Andy Schleck. The green jersey is now being worn by Alessandro Petacchi(having today finshed ahead of holder Thor Hushovd) and the polka dot jersey, for king of the mountains, is still with Jérôme Pineau.
