Tour de France: Week Three Summary

Tour de France: Week Three Summary

The final week of the Tour de France was highlighted by a top 5 performance of Peter Velits — despite bronchitis — in the 53.5km Stage 19 time trial. Velits was 4th, below two members of the overall podium: Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky ProCycling) and Chris Froome (Team Sky ProCycling). Bert Grabsch also had to deal with bronchitis during the final stages.

Levi Leipheimer worked his way into a Stage 17 breakaway of 20 riders, but a late move by Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) on the HC Port de Bales was the attack of the race.

Dries Devenyns took a flier in the final kilometer of Stage 18, but the stage came down to a field sprint.

Brian Holm wrote a couple fantastic blogs on the final day of the Tour de France, summarizing the efforts of the team, talking about Paris, and much more.

OPQS also released a 2nd documentary video for "Our Journey Through France."
