The Tour Day Fourteen
Today was a flat hot day. McEwen wanted the win to make up some points for the Green Jersey, now that Boonen is out of the race. Several riders broke out early and McEwen's Davitamon-Lotto formed at the front of the Peloton to catch the miscreants. Their work was rewarded and McKwen was able to win another stage. American Chris Horner and Sylvain Chavanel were at the front of the breakout which ended just meters in front of the line. What an amazing finish!

Lance the rest of the Peloton crossed with the same time as McKwen so there was no change in the GC.

Sadly the tour claimed the hero of Stage 10 and the holder of the White Jersey, Alejandro Valverde. Valverde apparently has had some tendonitis problems. That put Popo back in the White!

Up next, the Pyrenees!

Ten Days to go!
