  1. Stage 12, for those who missed the action on Eurosport, was as exciting a finish as you will see with three gamblers on a long break sprinting for the win and Ryder H. launching an attack with under four km to go after Liquigas had put the hammer down to tire out all challengers to Ivan Basso. Rodrigez gave it a dig but could not catch Hesjedal, so Ryder is back in pink. Yahoo for Canadian cycling.
