Defeated unexpectedly in stage 13, the Spanish Movistar squad has straightened itself up again on the road to Lyon and won its fourth stage as a team. This is due to the gaps created in the break by José Joaquin Rojas – fourth in the 14thstage – and escape companion Imanol Erviti (15th). The previous leaders of the overall ranking seemed almost doomed after losing 20 minutes to Saxo-Tinkoff yesterday but it has returned to second place, just 2'26” behind the Danish team. Belkin Pro Cycling remains ready for an ambush at 2'32”, but the other two winners from the escape en-route to Lyon are AG2R La Mondiale and RadioShack-Leopard, the latter are the defending champions, and they have the ambition of winning for a third time in four years of existence.
