Schleck Moves Into Tour Lead

Andy Schleck (LUX) of Team Saxo Bank moved into the Maillot Jaune and the Tour Lead after stage 9.  Schleck and Alberto Contador (ESP), both riding Zipp 202s, separated themselves from the other Tour GC contenders on the day’s final climb.  They sustained their lead on the decent into Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne moving into first and second on GC respectively.  Contador now sits 41 seconds off of the lead.


Cervelo’s Thor Hushovd (NOR) snagged two of the stage’s intermediate sprints, securing his grip on the Maillot Verte over Alessandro Petacchi.
