Le Tour de France, Stage 11

(This report contains no significant spoilers.)

I think I'll take page from the book of Soccertopia---I mean, Footballtopia---I mean Neurotopia---and tell you that today's stage, Stage 11, of the Tour was very exciting. If you receive OLN, you should at least check out the last hour of the prime-time coverage, from 10:00 to 11:00 tonight. All you need to know to enjoy Stage 11 is this about the standings after Stage 10:

Yesterday, a few-man break got away, putting Cyril Dessel (Ag2r) in the yellow jersey at 4:45 ahead of American Floyd Landis and even farther ahead of the other big names, such as Andréas Klöden (T-Mobile), Vladimir Karpets (Caisse d'Epargne), Cadel Evans (Davitamon-Lotto), and Carlos Sastre (CSC). Meanwhile, because of an unnusually poor performance in the time trial, American Levi Leipheimer (Gerolsteiner) was in 58th position at 10:28 back.
