Carlos Sastre (CSC) kept the yellow jersey after today’s time trial and will ride into Paris tomorrow as the winner of the Tour de France. Cadel Evans, who is supposed to be better than everyone else in time trials, failed to take the yellow jersey today – a big disappointment for him and his fans. Carlos Sastre won the Alpe d’Huez stage (number 17), a difficult mountainous ride. Indeed, his performance there and at the time trial today, shows his superiority in this year’s Tour de France.
Other results today: Stefan Schumacher came in first in the time trial, Fabian Cancellara came in second.
