Tour de France Stage 17: Pau to Col du Tourmalet

Schleck and Contador were both center stage today as the two bicyclists went mano a mano up one of the hardest climbs this TDF has to offer. While Contador retained the yellow jersey, many say the fight is not yet won–Schleck is only 8 seconds behind and is still very much interested in winning the tour.

In what some will consider a nice change of pace, Contador apologized to Schleck for his previous conduct, and acted in a much more traditional way during this stage’s ride.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next stage’s results–they’re bound to be exciting!
