It's all getting a bit much for Cadel

Blows were exchanged in the final gallop as a clearly frustrated Cadel Evans (BMC Racing) who missed the final decisive breakaway let many days of pent up frustration burst out. A handful of seconds up ahead it didn't stop a deserving Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) from beating Thomas Voeckler (Bbox Bouygues) and Jerome Pineau (Quick Step) in a closely faught battle.

Australian Richie Porte kept the pink leader's jersey but along with the thwarted Aussie World Champion Cadel Evans, he lost 10 seconds to many of the favourites, including Alexandre Vinokourov.
