24 year-old Markus Fothen of Gerolsteiner won the white jersey of the young rider at the Tour de France on Tuesday. "Of course this is a nice bonbon," he said. "I speculated on it, and I'm happy that it worked out so soon. But our goal remains to bring our two captains as far forward as we can." Those two captains, Levi Leipheimer and Georg Totschnig, didn't lose any time today, and directeur sportif Christian Henn said, "It was very important to have both of them up there today."
