Going into tomorrow's time trial Bradley Wiggins holds onto the Yellow Jersey and will have the advantage of starting last in the trial. There are now only four riders within a minute of Wiggins. Had Jurgen Van den Broeck not had his mechanical problem just before yesterday's main climb, he might well have been up there too.
Sadly Samuel Sanchez, one of Spain's strongest riders and winner of the Mountains jersey last year, was forced to abandon the Tour today following a crash breaking his right wrist and left collarbone. Gorka Verdugo Marcotegui has also abandoned.
