Tour De France: Stage 14

Well everyone was expecting a big first day in the Pyrenees today, but nothing happened.  Contador and Schleck watched each other like two track cyclists, literally coming to almost a stop on the final climb of the day at one point in a track standoff.  Schleck continues to hold onto the lead as Contador could gain no time.  They did set themselves up though for a bit as Menchov and Samuel Sanchez grabbed back some time, not much but a little.  Truth is two guys can't forget that there are a lot of other very talented riders around them.
