He survived but lost the yellow jersey: Col d’Aubisque

Today features the Col d’Aubisque. In 1951 Wim van Est famously fell of the Col d’Aubisque. A monument spot 50 years later, on July 17, 2001, says: “Here on 17 July 1951 the cyclist Wim van Est fell 70 metres. He survived but lost the yellow jersey.” I think someone else is going to lose the jersey today but, I hope not as Thomas Voeckler has a real fighting spirit he proved that back in 2004. My predictions of Contador have not yet come true but, I’m still watching. The Schleck brothers seem in control as does Cadel Evans. Today will weed out a few more GC hopefuls – but who?
