With some long climbs on narrow roads the GC (general classifications) contenders got there teams out on the front to make sure they were in the right place in case of any splits in the group. As it is frequently said in multi stage races, one couldn't win the Tour in today's stage, but one could lose it. Lose it with large time gabs opening up between riders and the peloton. Brent Bookwalter, one of several Americans in the Tour, leads the peloton for BMC with Cadel tucked in behind Boasson Hagen, Richie Porte, and Chris Froome of Team Sky.
