Tour de France: Stage 7

What a Stage! First of all, hats-off to Jerome Pineau for adding points to his King of the Mountains Jersey in such heroic fashion. He earned every spot on that polka-dotted shirt and bike. But equally special was the story of Pinaeau's Quick Step teammate, Sylvain Chavanel. After all the flat tires, bike changes, and terrible luck of Stage 3 that cost him the Yellow Jersey, Chavanel didn't give up. He saw something special in those beautiful green hills of Stage 7. But it wasn't green that was urging him on -- it was yellow...

...the awesome glow of the Yellow Jersey.
