Tour de France rest day

Create your own video at One True Media

Jens Voigt won the longest stage of the Tour de France (142.9 miles), giving the CSC team its first victory at the three-week race. Voigt beat out Oscar Pereiro Sio, of the Illes Balears team, at the finish of the 13th stage. They were about 30 minutes ahead of the main pack, which included race leader Floyd Landis of the United States, giving Pereiro enough of a lead over Landis to take over the Yellow Jersey. In this video of mine is Jens. I met him and the rest of the CSC team on the tour's official rest day (which is hardly a rest day, given that they ride about 60 miles). My group - thanks to Marty (former racer on the U.S. Postal team with Lance Armstrong) - rode with the CSC team for a brief part of their ride during the vineyards of Bourdeaux. I also caught a quick shot of the Discovery team. My handy helmet camera worked out OK for this part of the ride.
