The GC standings are really starting to freak me out. Ever since Stage 7, the top three rankings have invariably looked like this:
- NOCENTINI Rinaldo (Italy) Agr2-La Mondial
CONTADOR Alberto (Spain) Astana +00’06″
ARMSTRGONG Lance (USA) Astana +00’08″
With the exception of Stage 10 when Andreas Kloden briefly bested him, American Levi Leipheimer has been consistently in 4th place at 39 seconds behind NOCENTINI.
What’s up with that?
Spoilers in the links out…
You’ll see race details in the race reports but Cavendish’s win moved him up one place in the GC from 135th place to 134th at 1 hour 14 minutes behind race leader Rinaldo Nocentini.
KWC: Cav unbeatable.
Bike Rumor: Cavendish Continues.
Bike World News: Stage 11 results.
VN: Cav leaps uphill.
