The Tour Day Twelve
Unlike day eleven, Discovery set the pace over the all of the mountains today and then set up Lance for a sprint at the finish. Vino grabbed a stage for T-Mobile, yet Kloden and Ulrich were not able to make up any time on Lance. Vino had a very gutsy ride leading up all three of the big climbs including the highest climb of the tour and he had a nice sprint over Botera for the finish.

But in the end and in spite of Vino's efforts, there was not major change in the GC. Moreau moved from fourth in the GC to third due to his third place bonus in today's finish. Lance keeps the yellow. The rest of the Jerseys also remain unchanged.

Sadly there were six victims of the tour today. Voigt who wore yellow yesterday, finished 400 yards outside the time limit and was eliminated. Very sad. Quickstep lost two riders. Fasso Bortolo also lost two riders.

12 days to go!
