Frank Schleck (Lux) took over the lead in the Tour de France today by sprinting away from the leader's group in the closing kilometer of Stage 15. Teammate Carlos Sastre (Spa) made up valuable time, pulling to within a minute of the overall lead by escaping with Bernhard Kohl (Aut).

Garmin-Chipotle rider, Christian Vende Velde (USA), stayed with the leaders but fell to 5th overall - 39 seconds off of the lead. Teammate Danny Pate (USA) finished 3rd on the day, riding in a four-man breakaway the entire day.
