The Tour Day Nineteen
Discovery does it again. Unreal. The peloton allowed an escape. This time Johann put two Discovery riders in the group of escapees. The result is another stage win for Discovery by Paolo Savoldelli. With the win and the huge gap from the escapees to the leaders, Discovery took the lead in the team competition! So Discovery control the Yellow Jersey, the White Jersey and the team competition. Unreal.

On the last climb the leaders in the GC broke from the Peloton. Vino then joined them and launched a huge attack to spring himself into seventh place in the GC. Vino also announced today that he is done with T-Mobile at the end of the year. In the end the leaders finished together so with the exception of Vino the rest of the GC was substantially unchanged. Lance now has Yellow Jersey 79 the second only to Merckx.

Sadly Kloden, who crashed and broke his arm yesterday, dropped out of the race today.

Four Days to Go!
