Tour de France Stage 19: Bordeaux to Pauillac
This stage lifted–and then dashed–the hopes of legions of Schleck fans out there. Despite early appearances, Schleck’s legs were simply no match for Contador’s during this time trial. Contador will ride into Paris with the yellow jersey and 33+ seconds ahead of Schleck.
Schleck, who was disappointed, also acknowledge that “beating Contador is not easy” and that he did his best. For all of the details about this penultimate TDF 2010 stage, you can read active.com’s take on it here
