Armstrong’s Bid For the 2010 Tour Over
In continuing bad luck Armstrong was caught up in 3 crashes, fell off his bike once, and was left behind during the crucial stage 8 ride. Cadel Evans of Team BMC beat Armstrong to the finish line by 13 minutes and 26 seconds, putting any remaining dreams of an 8th TDF win to bed.
Armstrong will, however, be sticking around to assist his teammates, especially 8th place overall Levi Leipheimer, who may still have a chance for yellow.
Many favor Andy Schleck of SaxoBank as a likely winner this year, and he moved into second place overall, 20 seconds behind the Australian Evans who is the current leader.
