2006 TDF Stage 1

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):

Pos. Name Surname Team Nat. Gaps
1 003 HINCAPIE George DSC USA  
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.
