2008 Tour de France
July 5 - July 27, 2008

Stage 2, Sunday, July 6: Auray - Saint Brieuc, 164.5 km:

Here's the sprint. Thor Hushovd (in green Credit Agricole kit) has hit the front.
No one can pass Thor today. That makes 6 career Tour stage wins for Hushovd.
The Mouth of the South. Italy's Riccardo Ricco will make the Tour interesting. He's talented as all get-out and he doesn't know when to shut up. Note the vest and arm warmers for the morning rain.
That's 2 days in Yellow for Valverde. His team worked hard to keep the jersey today, unusual for a real contender's team this early in the race. Can they keep this up all the way to Paris? I still think he'll fold like a cheap suit in the third week.
