For the top riders in GC, the script played out as it had in all of the mountain climbs. Today, Lance, Jan, Basso and stage 16's hero Cadel Evans seperated themselves into the first group. So Lance stayed firmly in control of the Yellow, seperating himself from everyone except for Ulrich and Basso. Ulrich was able to gain some time on Rassmussen and as I mentioned earlier, I have no doubt that Ulrich will move up one to two places after the TT.
For the first time since Stage 4, no riders were dropped from the race!
Three Days to go!
