Montpellier Team Time Trial (39 km)
The time trial circuit gave viewers plenty of time to admire Montpellier, a smart looking city with an impressive 17th Century Arc de Triomphe.
Today was the Team Time Trial with an exciting finish when Lance Armstrong, riding with today’s winning Team Astana, so nearly managed to get into the yellow jersey, but didn’t. Everyone wonders whether he will wear it tomorrow. Mark Cavendish and Team Columbia-High Road finished in fifth place and he will continue to wear the green jersey.
