Sorry I know I'm late with this post, I was otherwise occupied yesterday :) Yesterday's TDF stage from Andorra to Saint Girons featured some high mountains, but they were far enough from the finish that most observers expected a break to succeed rather than GC action. And so it was that Luis Leon Sanchez won out of a four-man break that led the peloton across the hills all day.
There was some infighting among the contenders, with Cadel Evans taking off early and immediately being reeled in, but the mountain action was mostly quiet. Probably the best move was Thor Hushovd's, shown at right, who took off in an early break to grab enough sprint points to take the green jersey away from Mark Cavendish. He should be able to hold it through the mountains until Tuesday.
