I just got done watching Stage 1 of the 2006 TDF. Here are the top 5 riders overall (the GC competition for the yellow jersey):
|2||118||HUSHOVD Thor||C.A||NOR||00' 02"|
|3||018||ZABRISKIE David||CSC||USA||00' 06"|
|4||044||LANG Sebastian||GST||GER||00' 06"|
|5||091||VALVERDE Alejandro||CEI||ESP||00' 06"|
The only surprise was Hushovd's wreck at the end of the stage. It looked bad on the video, but I don't know exactly what happened.
Expect more tomorrow evening after I watch the tape when I get home from work.
