No surprise that the first mountains shook things up at PN. My man Frank Shleck was there with 2K to go, but Contador gets the win for Disco. Rebellin at the head of affairs looking strong and get the leader jersey! Schleck at 42 back, Leiphemer at 50 seconds back, and Mayo 56 seconds back. With some hilly stages to come no one is out, but this is always a close race and it seems unlikely someone not already in the top twenty will win. Millar is still hanging in there.
