Tour de France News and Standings After the 19th Stage

Tour de France Ends on Sunday

I have been watching le Tour, catching up with the race early in the morning, café crème in hand. My breakfast TV benders will be ending this Sunday, when the final stage of the race enters Paris.

Lance Armstrong's Astana team member, Spaniard Alberto Contador, still wears the yellow jersey of the leading rider. Contador is 4 minutes and 11 seconds ahead of Luxembourg's Andy Schleck after the 19th stage — 178 kilometer ride (110 miles) on flat terrain considered a sprint. Brit Mark Cavendish won the stage, his fifth.

Learn what place Lance is in, when you


Already planning his strategy for next year and creating a team sponsored by RadioShack, Lance Armstrong holds onto third place but is five minutes and 21 seconds behind Contador. It is not surprising that there has been some friction between teammates Contador and Armstrong. In an interview Lance said, ". . . my ambition is to get on the podium, so I have to try to be happy with that." If he rides well tomorrow, in the 20th stage, 167 km (103 miles) of mountainous terrain that ends with a serious climb, chances are high he will capture third place.

I, for one, will be watching on Saturday and Sunday. Will you?
