10k to go....

 

its really exciting cos we have poursuivants...Popovych and Contador chasing him down...

 

Then 1’18" to the yellow jersey group -- Rasmussen, Valverde, Gutierrez, Astarloza and Kirchen in that....then a second group of poursuivants...

 

1’30" to Evans, Arroyo, Sastre, Moreau, Leipheimer, Cobo, Mayo and Kloden.…

2km To Go For Soler...

 

 

Soler is 2km from the end of the stage. The road is about to rise again as it approaches the finish.…

 

Evans, Arroyo, Sastre, Moreau, Leipheimer, Mayo and Kloden have just caught Rasmussen, Valverde, Gutierrez, Astarloza, Kirchen, Contador and Popovych. There are now 14 men in pursuit of Soler

The rise to the finish is a steep one.

 

Soler has begun to climb and the 14 chasers are now 2km from the finish 50" behind...

 

He should hang on, but it could be tight, with the yellow jersey leading the chasing group !!

Rasmussen is now leading the pursuit of Soler. Evans is on his wheel and the pace is too much for Moreau who has failed to stay in touch with the yellow jersey’s group.…

 

Still 30 seconds in front though....

Soler wins, giving the wildcard team a victory in the Tour de France. Winner by 38 secs.

 

Seven years since Santiago Botero’s landmark win in Briancon, Colombia is about to get another stage win.

 

Valverde 2nd

Evans 3rd

 

Rasmussen remains in Yellow Jersey
