Chinks in Discovery's Armour

Saturday's return to France from Germany saw the Germans (Dutch and Kazakhs) really shake things up. As expected T Mobile attacked on the final climb with Vino hitting hard three times in a row. On Vino's first attack, Savoldelli closed down the gap with Armstrong on his wheel, but that first attack blew the discovery team apart and Armstrong was left isolated to chase down the subsequent two attacks and finish the stage. Andreas Kloden took advantage of Armstrong's isolation to attack and bridge up to early breakaway Pieter Weening who beat Kloden on the line by two milimeters. Discovery have a lot of questions to answer...
