Final Thoughts- Stage 19

It was the ending we had all hoped for and anticipated. The last two men out on the road drew their swords, shouted "Charge", and took on each other and the 32-mile course.

Andy Schleck seized the early advantage, but whether it was the adrenaline wearing off, or fatigue finally taking hold, Alberto Contador would take the upper hand and never look back.

Alberto has now won FIVE consecutive Grand Tours, and within that run, stood on the top step in Paris three times. He is the greatest of his generation, but Andy is nipping at his heels.

Not to be lost in the excitement, Fabian Cancellara wins yet another time trial and now has SIX Tour stage wins in his career. There is NO ONE who can match his maneuvers against the clock.

Tomorrow, Contador is crowned 'King', but the sprinters get one last chance to go for "Green". Petacchi and Cavendish renew their rivalry on the most famous avenue in the world. It will be a dash to determine speed supremacy.
