The Time Trial…Sastre Wins!


Saturday found us in St. Armand Montrond for the crucial final time trial.  Despite the hopes of thousands of flag-draped Aussies, the time trial changed nothing and Carlos Sastre was crowned the winner a day before the ride into Paris.

While we waited for the leaders, Myrna and I spent the afternoon exploring the small town of St. Armand…enjoying an impromptu picnic in the square.

The stage was won by Schumacher of Gerolsteiner, and a wasted Cadel Evans was only able to take 30s out of Sastre.  CSC put its final stamp on the Tour, taking the White Jersey for Andy Schleck and the Yellow for Sastre.
