Contador And Schleck In Front As End Of Tour Approaches
Posted by Nancy on July 23, 2010
It has been a grueling 19 days for those participating in this years Tour de France and it is almost over. On Sunday, the winner will cross the finish line in Paris and the Tour for 2010 will be history, along with the hopes and dreams of numerous riders. Lance Armstrong will be foremost among those who had such high expectations for this race only to see those dreams end with unanticipated crashes along the way. Armstrong finished 4:12 behind the leaders for stage 17 which was the last mountain section of the Tour. He remains committed to helping his Radio Shack teammates finish strong. Meanwhile the leaders, Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck, are well ahead of everyone else in the race. Schleck had promised to put in a strong performance for stage 17 and he delivered but it still was not enough to take the yellow jersey from Contador. Unless Contador weakens or Schleck has a stellar performance on tomorrows 32 mile time trial, it appears that Alberto Contador will emerge as the victor in this years Tour de France.
