OK, seems nobody cares about it so I'll start this myself....
Today in stage 10, the Peloton went off, and a breakaway was made after some 12KM of racing.
That breakaway was eventually run down by "Groupe Armstrong" which consisted of himself, Ullrich, Rassmussen, Vinokurove, Basso, and some others.
They then picked up the pace even more with 20KM to go, dropping Vinokurove and Ullrich and even Basso, leaving Armstrong and Rassmussen to battle it out with 2 other riders (1 of which was Alejandro Valverde, a good sprinter).
500 meteres from the end, Armstrong and Valvede stepped on it and went for the big sprint finish, with Valvede finishing a couple inches ahead of the Grand Master.
Armstrong managed to get 1:02 minutes from Basso, 2:14 minutes from Ullrich and over 5 minutes (!!!) from Vinokurove.
This means Armstrong is back in yellow again, leading the tour by 38 seconds from Rassmussen, and his closest rival of the big names is only Basso, over 2:30 minutes away.
This definately is a delight for the great American, going for his 7th consecutive Tour victory, an all time record.
