Schumacher's average speed was 49.534 km/h. Not as fast as we could have expected in this rather short time trial. Was it just the parcours, and the wind, or may we hope that the peloton is really riding cleaner than in previous years?
Paolo Longo comes in, clocking 40'16. This is our provisional Top 3: General classification after stage 4
1 Stefan Schumacher (Gerolsteiner)
2 Kim Kirchen (Columbia) 0.12
3 David Millar (Garmin Chipotle - H30)
