Tour gallery: Andy Schleck

Despite his age Andy Schleck has already been knocking on the Tour de France’s door for a few years, and this year he’s hoping to rise to the top step. After finishing on the podium last year Schleck is looking to put a rough start to his 2010 season behind him and challenge the likes of Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador for overall glory.

Schleck’s Saxo Bank squad has already suffered mixed fortunes at this year’s race. Andy pulled out a small margin on his general classification rivals on the important stage three, however he also lost brother Frank to a broken collarbone on the same stage. Frank would have been an important assistant – and possible contender himself – when the race reaches the mountain stages, and the loss of him from the Danish team will undoubtedly have an impact.
