Thunderstruck

The God of Thunder, Thor Hushoved (NOR) of the Cervelo Test Team endured the rain and a breakaway by Garmin's David Millar (GBr) to win stage 6 of the Tour de France.  Millar broke early and held the lead until 2K to go.  The sprinters moved their way to the front of the field.  Thor went from the left side to the right side, coming around to win the sprint on Zipp wheels.

Thor's victory marks the second stage win for Zipp's officially sponsored teams.  The first being Fabian Cancellara's win in the prologue.  Zipp still holds the leader's jersey with Fabian maintaining a .22 second lead over Lance Armstrong.
