5km to go on a 22km, 6.2 degree climb into Courchevel, and Lance Armstrong is in the lead with three others whom he is likely to be able to sprint out at the finish. A likely stage win today. Voigt is 13′ back, which would give Lance the yellow jersey as well.
This is the first day of the monster mountain climbs.
UPDATE: Valverde barely beats out Armstrong for the stage win, but Armstrong gets the yellow jersey to wear Wednesday.
