Tue, Jul 17: TdF Stage 9

Today's stage finished early, at least too early for me to get some live coverage before the finish.

Provisional results:

1 Mauricio Soler (Col) Barloworld 4.14.24 (37.618 km/h)
2 Alejandro Valverde Belmonte (Spa) Caisse d'Epargne 0.38
3 Cadel Evans (Aus) Predictor - Lotto
4 Alberto Contador Velasco (Spa) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 0.40
5 Iban Mayo Diez (Spa) Saunier Duval - Prodir 0.42
6 Michael Rasmussen (Den) Rabobank
7 Levi Leipheimer (USA) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team
8 Kim Kirchen (Lux) T-Mobile Team 0.46
9 Andreas Klöden (Ger) Astana
10 Carlos Sastre Candil (Spa) Team CSC

Michael Rasmussen (Rabobank) keeps the yellow jersey. Vinokourov (Astana) came in 3:23 back and will likely have to bury his hopes of winning the Tour this year; Astana needs to focus on Klöden now.

GC classification:

1 Michael Rasmussen (Den) Rabobank 43.52.48
2 Alejandro Valverde Belmonte (Spa) Caisse d'Epargne 2.35
3 Iban Mayo Diez (Spa) Saunier Duval - Prodir 2.39
4 Cadel Evans (Aus) Predictor - Lotto 2.41
5 Alberto Contador Velasco (Spa) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 3.08
6 Christophe Moreau (Fra) AG2r Prévoyance 3.18
7 Carlos Sastre Candil (Spa) Team CSC 3.39
8 Andreas Klöden (Ger) Astana 3.50
9 Levi Leipheimer (USA) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 3.53
