Alberto Contador took a few swings at rival Andy Schleck on the ascent of the Ax-3 Domaines but was unable to crack the Luxembourger. At one point the two were practically doing track stands on the days final climb while their rivals Dennis Menchov and Sammy Sanchez sped away. The two overall leaders were not overly concerned with Menchov and Sanchez since they are more than two minutes behind on the General Classification.
After the stage Schleck said tomorrows stage over the Port be Bales is more suited to his strengths and that he might take some chances tomorrow. I dont look for either rider to gain any time on tomorrows stage with an almost 22 kilometer descent to the finish. Im sure it will be a select group but I look for Schleck, Contador, Menchov, and Sanchez and probably a few others to finish together tomorrow. The next decisive stage will be Thursdays finish atop the Col du Tourmalet.
