DAY’S RECAP | Tour de France



Published: Mon, July 16, 2007 @ 12:00 a.m.

Stage: A 102.5-mile trek from Le Grand-Bornand to Tignes that took the peleton up three category 1 ascents in succession toward an uphill finish.

Winner: Michael Rasmussen of Denmark won his third career Tour stage in 4 hours, 49 minutes, 40 seconds. Iban Mayo of Spain was second, 2:47 behind, followed by Alejandro Valverde of Spain, 3:12 back.

Yellow Jersey: Rasmussen took the lead from German rider Linus Gerdemann, who trailed several minutes behind. Rasmussen held a 43-second lead over Gerdemann and a 2:39 gap over Mayo.

Quote of the Day: “If I have to go all the way, and take the yellow jersey all the way to Paris, I will have to climb faster than I have ever done in my life.” — Rasmussen remains circumspect about his chances of winning the Tour.

Next stage: Today is a rest day and Tuesday is the last of the three Alpine climbs, 99.1 miles from Val d’Isere to Briancon.
