Declared as the so-called „Group Armstrong“, the former tour winner seemed highly motivated to disprove the constant bad press about its performance as well as the continuing doping allegations.

And indeed, the eight outliers could leave the peloton almost seven minutes behind, which enabled Armstrong to reduce the gap to Contador to +33:46 min.

Today, the 17th Stage of the Tour de France in 2010 runs from Pau to Col du Tourmalet and will challenge the riders on a length of 174 km.
