DAILY RECAP Tour de France



Published: Tue, July 10, 2007 @ 12:00 a.m.

Stage: Took riders along a 104.7-mile trek on rain-drenched roads from Dunkirk, France, to Ghent.

Winner: Belgian rider Gert Steegmans of sprint ace Tom Boonen’s Quickstep team. Boonen finished second.

Yellow Jersey: Fabian Cancellara, winner of Saturday’s prologue, retained it despite hurting his left wrist in a fall. Andreas Kloeden, a German rider for the Astana team, stayed second overall, with British cyclist David Millar third.

Quote of the Day: “If it’s a gift ... it’s the biggest gift I could ever receive” — Steegmans, when asked whether Boonen had slowed up to give him the win.

Next stage: Today’s third stage takes riders on a 147-mile ride from Waregem to Compiegne, northeast of Paris. Once again it favors sprinters like Boonen, Robbie McEwen and Thor Hushovd.
