RiderPicture.aspTip of the hat to Euskaltel – Euskadi rider Alan Perez Lezaun who will not get a chance to finish in Paris today solely because he went back to try and help Eu-Eu rider Amets Txurruka get back into the race in Stage 19. The duo struggled to catch up with the peloton and finished outside the limit.

Juan Manuel Garate out ran Tony Martin to win the stage, both riders having survived as the last remnants of a nearly all-day breakaway. A great ride for both Garate and Martin, who appeared spent in the earlier Alpine stages but hung tough today. The rest of the breakaway, which had numbered up to 19 riders at one point, was swallowed up by the GC leaders in the final kilometers of Mont Ventoux’s brutal slopes.

Andy Schleck could not out run Alberto Contador, and sacrificed substantial attacks in the final 10 km to try and lead his brother Frank to an attack on Armstrong’s lead. Frank Schleck however didn’t have the energy to out run Armstrong, who was hanging tough despite being unable to match the younger Schleck’s attacks. One rider who had no trouble at all matching Andy Schleck was Alberto Contador who rode confidently on Schleck’s tail and even lent support to Armstrong once it was clear that the younger Schleck posed not threat to his GC lead of over 4 minutes. In the end it was Schleck, Contador, Armstrong and Schleck, followed by the LLiquigas trio or Kreuziger, Pellizotti and Nibali, with an exhausted Bradley Wiggins bringing up the rear but squeezing out enough speed to avoid surrendering his 4th overall to the elder Schleck.

Kreuziger’s tough ride pulled him into the top 10 of the overall, displacing Eu-Eu’s Mikel Astarloza who appeared to struggle today. Pellizotti’s ride also deserves Kudo’s; his King of the Mountains title was never in doubt today, but he honored the polka dot jersey with a tough ride and an attack at the top of Mont Ventoux. Egoi Martinez picked up 17 points on the earlier climbs in the day but finishes 61 pts behind Pellizotti in the final accounting of the King of the Mountains.

Stage 18 – Individual Time Trial July 24, 2009

OK, Lance fans… that last shred of hope that we had about Lance dominating a stage and coming back to challenge Contador? In the words of Cubs fans ‘Wait til next year’. Whatever doubts remained about Alberto Contador’s dominance this year are gone, long gone.

Personally, I was rooting for Fabian Cancellara today…this is exactly the kind of event he loves; a time trial with enough of a hill to take the starch out of the undisciplined riders. And early on, it really looked like it might be another stage win for Cancellara as the top riders came it behind his time, one after another. Katusha rider Mikhail Ignatiev’s brave ride early also deserves huge kudos. There is no way to overestimate how much easier it is for the late riders to peg the effort to the times of the early leaders. Ignatiev had none of the that going for him and still delivered what was very nearly the best ride of the day. Alberto Contador played his yellow jersey advantage perfectly and mapped his ride to Cancellara’s times perfectly, finishing a scant 3 seconds ahead of the Swiss rider’s time. But let’s not underestimate how tough matching Cancellara’s time trial performance can be…Every other top GC rider tried and not one rider following Cancellara could come withing 30 seconds of his performance; Wiggins and Millar did well, but only Contador could do better.

On to Mont Ventoux, the last real challenge in this year’s Tour…. 2nd and 3rd are still in doubt.

A fantastic demonstration of teamwork by the Schleck brothers as they attacked the Grand-Bornand. Only one problem…they couldn’t shake Alberto Contador.

A crazy day filled with breakaways, chases, a crash and a comeback.

Perhaps the biggest news of the day was the crash and injury of Jens Voight, one of the finest riders and teammates on the Tour year after year. Jens was moving fast only the final descent when his bike seemed to jump sideways flipping him face first onto the road with tremendous force. He was immediately taken to medical care and is reportedly banged up but expected to recover fully. Having told one of my kids yesterday that Jens Voight is exactly the kind of competitor and teammate they should emulate, it’s hard to imagine feeling worse about losing any rider on the tour. Thoughts and prayers going out to Jens tonight.

The backdrop to the crash was a day filled with repeated attempts at breakaways, high speed attacks and higher speed descents. In the end a breakaway lead by Pierrick Fedrigo, Franco Pellizotti and Mikel Astarloza succeeded and lead to an Astarloza stage win, and loads of KotH points for Pellizotti. The lead group got 8 men across the finish almost a minute ahead of the GC overall leaders, but the action in the first chase group was also outstanding.

Contador and Andy Schleck lead the Yellow Jersey chase group which had over 30 riders well into the last climb, but an attack with 7 km to go by Schleck split the group and dropped a number of top riders includin Evans and Armstrong. Armstrong however surged back from the second chase group and captured the lead chase group in the final 2 km of the climb, dashing the hopes of several riders looking to replace Armstrong on the podium.

Wow! What a finishing kick by Alberto Contador. The riders are still coming in, but the pretenders are gone. Contador ran away from the pack, Schleck, Wiggins and Sastre held on and Armstrong faded. There are still a lot of mountains left, but it is hard to imagine anyone passing Contador on any one of those climbs. Lance looked particularly vulnerable, as he could not match Contador’s kick with 5km to go and only just clung to the GC 2nd.

Stage 14 into Besancon – Hincapie’s Big Move July 18, 2009

But the big news of the day was Hincapie, who started the day only 5′ 25″ out of the lead, and with the breakaway upwards of 8 minutes ahead at times during the stage, assumed the virtual overall lead. However, a furious pace set by the AG2R riders in the peloton during the final 50km pulled the bunch back within 5’20 of the breakaway group so George finished the day  in second by a scant 5 seconds. Contador and Armstrong lost no time and remain 6 and 8 seconds back respectively.

Heartbreaking to watch the interview with Hincapie afterwards as the realization the AG2R assault had robbed him of a once in a lifetime opportunity at the Yellow Jersey.
