14km - Rasmussen has quickly ridden onto Contador's wheel. The rest have been jettisoned. They have 2km to the summit.

13km - The young Spaniard puts two more digs in, this is like track sprinting, but the Dane will not crack.

16:06 - Arroyo sixth at 3:23 as Contador goes for another push. It's enough to drop team-mate Hincapie.

16:08 - Turpin 9th at 5:16 with Contador just ahead of Rasmussen in tenth, 5:31 back. No bonus seconds today so the difference is still 2:23.

The finger of suspicion still looms over Rasmussen....

his decision to keep quiet is not helping him, and his likely win is going to be tainted

Why O Why did he miss these tests...if he takes them he is above suspicion !!!

Funniest thing is he is now being backed to win it by the tour organising committee.... but not the governing body... hmm, watch this space, there will be more fireworks before this story is over I can tell you.
