Piepoli Wins at Hautacam; Evans Dons Maillot Jaune
Leonardo Piepoli (Saunier Duval) has notched his squad's third stage win of this year's Tour de France.
Velde by 0:38. Tomorrow will be the 2008 Tour's first rest day, and riders such as Evans will lick their wounds and savor their success, while those such as Valverde will ask themselves what went wrong. They will have precious little time for recuperation or introspection because Stage 3 will take place on Wednesday. The 167.5-km ride from Lannemezan to Foix will feature three categorized climbs, including the Category 1 Col de Portel at 110 km and the Category 3 Col de Bouich at 145 km. Look for an escapee to take this stage. Which one? Voigt? Cunego? Perhaps Valverde? Check in at www.roadcycling.com and find out!
