Le Tour de France 2006 (Stage 17)

July 20, 2006 at 3:30 pm Leave a comment

Floyd Landis rode the race of his life to win Stage 17 of Le Tour de France 2006. Unfortunately, it wasn’t good enough to wrestle the yellow jersey away from Oscar Pereiro. The good news is Floyd Landis has jumped from 11th to 3rd in the overal classification. Only 30 seconds separate Oscar Pereiro, Carlos Sastre and Floyd Landis in the final 3 stages of the race. One of these 3 riders will win this year’s race.

Stage 17 is probably one of the most exciting stages thus far. Floyd Landis attacked during the first climb of the day and rode alone for most of the stage until the finish line. He was determined to erase his poor performance suffered during the previous stage.

Only 3 days of competition is left. Who will win this year’s Le Tour?
