Re: TOUR DE FRANCE THREAD


Yes! I was going to start this thread, but didn't know if anyone would care.

The race today was unbelievable. Robby McEwen is like freaking Batman. How he can get tangled in trouble and still find his way to the top is amazing.

 I always enjoy the first few sprinters' stages. Listening to that cooky Brit call the finish makes me want to smoke a cigarette after. He's insane. I find myself sitting on the edge of the couch everytime.

I felt that dude going after the polkadot jersey today. Climbs 2K by himself to have Millar lead the pelaton over the line for points and the lead.

Re: TOUR DE FRANCE THREAD


Huge wreck with less than Km to go. Yellow jersey holder Canecallera comes up lame as well as a Team Discovery rider and few others. No word on how bad the injuries are so far. They all rode over the line

The Belgium Quickstep riders defend the home turf, taking 1 and 2.

Stage Results:

Gert Steegmans
Tom Booman
Filippo Pozzato (Ita) Liquigas

Yellow Jersey:
Fabian Cacellara (sui) CSC
Andreas Kloden (ger) Astana :13
David Millar (Gbr) Prodir :21
George Hincapie USA Discovery :23

Green: Booman finishes second, but takes over the Green from Robby McEwen
King 'o da mountain: Millar keeps it
ROY: Gusev keeps it!

By Bob Roll
July 11, 2007

Stage 4 took the riders from Cotterets all the way Joigny, 120 miles of racing

Not nearly the yawner yesterday’s stage was, a break of five men getting up the road comprised of Juan-Antonio Flecha, Sylvain Chavenal, Matthieu Sprick, Gorka Verdugo and Christian Knees. This quintet of pros flying down the road benefited from a nice tailwind -- it was a lot easier for the peloton to keep you in sight, however, -- and CSC turning at the front pulverizing the field as they have done throughout this Tour de France, so far defending the lead of Fabian Cancellara. Cancellara, who was very impressive yesterday, was very impressive again today.

He stays at the front, he knows what he needs to do, he doesn’t get into trouble and he doesn’t get into dangerous situations. He avoids all the crashes for the most part, although he was caught up in one, one kilometer from the finish line. He was perfectly positioned, so that was one of those things when Zoppa lost his pedal and swerved in front of the peloton taking out Manuel Quinziato, one of those things that cannot be predicted. You cannot fault Cancellara for the way he has ridden at any point in this year’s Tour, defending the race lead and honoring the jersey big time yesterday with a big win.

Today’s stage was a much more regular and predictable stage of the Tour we see in the opening week with sprinters teams controlling after the yellow jersey teams get all the tempo throughout the stage. There was a lot of work being done by the Barloworld squad, the first time we’ve seen them at the front of bike race doing the big lead out. Their man, Robbie Hunter, almost won the stage -- desperately close. However, nobody could match the acceleration to the line of Thor Hushovd and perfect lead out by Julian Dean, the Kiwi in the white and black jersey of Credit Agricole.

Dean was giving Hushovd an armchair ride within sight of the finish line when Hushovd saw the banner and could not be stopped. Robbie Hunter, chasing desperately from behind, very nearly closed the gap to Hushovd, but it was not to be. Oscar Freire finished third with Tom Boonen and Robbie Hunter nowhere to be seen. The vagaries of the sprinting stages encapsulated in the mind of Hushovd and a very gratifying win for the big Norwegian.

Tomorrow’s stage will feature a completely different cast of characters, but the thrills will be the same.

Highlights from the seventh stage of the Tour de France
 
July 14, 2007

LE GRAND-BORNAND, France (AP) -- A brief look at the seventh stage of the Tour de France on Saturday:

Stage: A 123-mile ride from Bourg-en-Bresse to Le Grand-Bornand featuring the first category 1 climb of the race up La Colombiere Pass.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
Winner: Linus Gerdemann, a 24-year-old German rider with T-Mobile competing in his first Tour. Spanish riders Inigo Landaluze and David de la Fuente finished in second and third place respectively.

Yellow Jersey: Gerdemann wears yellow 10 years to the day after countryman Jan Ullrich wore it for the first time in his career. Fabian Cancellara of Team CSC lost the jersey having worn it since winning London's opening prologue on July 7.

Quote of the Day: "I think many teams realize that's not the way anymore, the old-school way." -- Gerdemann, speaking out against doping. T-Mobile has put a rigorous anti-doping program in place within the team.

Next stage: Sunday's eighth stage from Le Grand-Bornand to Tignes takes the peleton over 102.5 miles and features three category 1 ascents in succession toward the end of the stage
