Tyler Hamilton (Phonak) and Jan Ullrich (T-Mobile) both lost crucial minutes today and will now find it extremely difficult to take the overall Tour win. Phonak's team proved stronger than Ullrich's and was able to support Tyler all the way to the finish while also having riders in the front group. Photo copyright Fotoreporter Sirotti.
