Haussler Solos to Stage Win on Zipp 303s.

Cervelo Test Team's Heinrich Haussler (GER) rode away from his breakaway compatriot, Sylvain Chavanel (FRA), to get his first ever stage win in the Tour de France.  Today's stage was marked with several rated climbs along with cold, wet weather.  

Haussler has had a remarkable season thus far, riding to second in Flanders and second at Milan San Remo.  His victory today marks the fourth official stage win for Zipp at the Tour de France and an equal number of "unofficial" stage wins.

Meanwhile, teammate Thor Hushovd (NOR) sprinted to 6th, moving him back into the green jersey marking the leader of the sprints.
