Final Thoughts- Stage 15

This year's Tour is quickly becoming a Pyrenean classic! The French earned back to back wins in the mountains, giving them 5 stages this year.

But the explosive news of the day was the 'mechanical' that cost Andy Schleck his ACCELERATION up the Port de Bales, but more importantly, his YELLOW JERSEY. As opposed to earlier in the Tour, no one was willing to wait for the Maillot Jaune, so Schleck turned himself inside-out to limit his losses, eventually relinquishing the most coveted color in cycling.

The duel will continue, as will the debate- were Contador's actions 'honorable' and is this the way to win the Tour de France? For 2 1/2 weeks, Andy Schleck has been extolling his firm friendship with Alberto, today he made no secret about his resolve for revenge.
