Stage of the Year? – Final Option – Stage 19 Tour de France

The final mountain stage of the Tour de France, Andy Schleck lead Cadel Evans by 57 seconds, and needed more time to protect that lead in the final time trial. Alberto Contador, who trailed Evans by 3’30”, had one last chance and attacked from the first climb and attacked again on the Alpe d’Huez. Samuel Sanchez wanted the stage and the Polka Dots, and young Pierre Rolland was finally free to fly after protecting Voeckler for 2 weeks.
