Quiet day in the peleton

Today was comparatively calm and uneventful, the calm before the storm of the long 52-km time trial tomorrow which will tell the tale for many of the riders. For reasons which aren't yet clear, French Credit Agricole rider Anthony Charteau (looking kind of Forrest Gump-ish in the photo) finished by himself 4:47 behind the leaders today, which dropped him from 168th to 170th in the general classification with an accumulated time of 32:33. He seems to be holding fairly steady at the back of the pack, since he had already been as far back as 170th place at the end of Stage 1.

Fellow Frenchman Sébastien Joly riding for Française des Jeux remains the Lanterne Rouge, though, with an accumulated time of 36:26.
