2008 Tour de France
July 5 - July 27, 2008

Pictures from Fotoreporter Sirotti from Stage 18, Thursday, July 24: Bourg d'Oisans - Saint-Étienne, 196.5 km

Carlos Barredo's displeasure at losing the sprint to Marcus Burghardt is obvious.
Oscar Freire (in green) took the field sprint for 11th place.
Damiano Cunego has had a rough Tour and today was dreadful. Even with lots of Lampre team help after his crash, he still finished last, roughly 13 minutes after the peloton arrived.
Carlos Sastre in yellow finished safely in the pack. Here he's being escorted by Frank Schleck (red, white, blue CSC kit) at the end of the stage.
