Bad luck for Andy Schleck, Contador gets yellow jersey

Results Tour de France 2010 stage 15
General classement Stage 15 Tour de France 2010

Luck plays a huge role in winning the Tour de France and Andy Schleck’s bad luck may determine the winner. Today, as Andy Schleck (yellow jersey holder as of the start of this stage) was making his way almost at the summit of the Port de Balès suddenly his chain came off. What horrible timing! Contador was right behind him. Seeing Schleck in mechanical trouble, Contador just took off and naturally, finished ahead of him, taking the yellow jersey. Now, Schleck is 8 seconds behind Contador in the general classement. There are still two stages in the Pyrenees so the race is not yet over. Debate is raging as to whether he should or should not have waited for Schleck. However, when Schleck did get his chain back on, he attacked like a madman, showing what an amazing rider he is.

Thomas Voeckler (BTL) won this stage 15; Alessandro Ballan came in second.
