Tour De France: Stage 16

Another day in the Pyrenees and another stage win for the French, their sixth of this year's Tour.  This is the most wins by the French since 1997.  No change in the overall today as everyone is waiting for the big showdown on the Col du Tourmalet on Thursday.  There was a change in the points competition though as Thor Hushovd moves back into the lead.  Also Christophe Moreau made a big move in the King of the Mountains competition today.  It will be interesting to see what happens there on Thursday.
