Anarchy reigned supreme again at the Tour de France as the pave may have dashed the hopes for many of the Tours favorites. General Classification contender Christian Vande Velde was unable to start todays stage after a crash, in which he suffered broken ribs and re-injured is back, claimed his Tour hopes yesterday and Frank Schleck was claimed by a crash today which broke his collar bone.
The race was won by Cervelos Thor Hushovd who crossed the finish line pounding his chest with an emphatic victory over Saxo Banks Fabian Cancellara. More importantly Hushovd claimed the green jersey with the victory and a commanding 50 point lead over most of the other sprinters in the points competition.

Some of us are at work, waiting to watch the race on DVR. THANK YOU SO MUCH for for posting the results right in the headline.

It's done all the time here, be it the Olympics, Tour de France, etc. For me, as a west coaster, I'm 3 hours behind.
The best bet it to not read FR when you have something you don't want spoiled.
Usually, there is a spoiler alert.
It happens all the time with and without "Spoiler alerts" and it's not just noobs. I've seen it done many times by veteran FReepers, some who have told me it was my fault for going on the Internet. It's a combination of selfishness and stupidity and it's not likely to end.
Yes, Lance still has a chance.Cadel is the big winner today but he is the worst climber. Andy is in great position but if Lance has some legs he and Alberto can burn up a few contenders.Lance will loose time to Alberto in the Mts but maybe not too much.It’s a sad thing about the crashes but this tour is shaping up to be a GREAT FIGHT because of how they are all positioned now!
I’m getting complaints both ways...
