Tour gallery: Andy Schleck

Andy Schleck came into the Tour as a favourite. Seventeen days later, not too much has changed.

He's fifth overall, 2:26 behind Alberto Contador. The climb of Verbier served as a roll call for the riders who will fill the major places. Schleck finished second that day to an inspired Contador but ahead of other rivals. With two major climbing stages to come there's plenty more action to come.

Schleck and his Saxo Bank teammates, particularly his brother Fränk, have shown that they are prepared to attack. Fifth at the tour is a good result but the fat lady isn't singing just yet.
