Garmin Second, Saxo Third in TTT. Fabian keeps leader's jersey.

In a narrow, winding course the teams of Garmin and Saxo Bank laid down some very fast times over the 39 kilometer course but it was not enough to best the time of 46.29 by Astana.  Garmin, was 18 seconds off the winning pace, finishing with just the 5 required riders.  Saxo bank was pulled around the TTT course by overall leader Fabian Cancellara (SUI); the team finished 40 seconds off the winning pace.

Fabian Cancellara and seven time Tour de France champion, Lance Armstrong (USA), are in a tie for the overall lead however Fabian will retain possession of the yellow leader's jersey.
