O'Grady pleased with race, sees Schleck as a wildcard for Tour

By Shane Stokes in Giubiasco

"We have had a great race so far," said a happy Stuart O'Grady before Wednesday's fifth stage. "We have had the lead each day and that is great for the team. Fränk is obviously in awesome form. Today the tactic is to keep the yellow jersey. I think the sprinters' teams will probably pull as it is the only stage left for them. We will get a bit of a tempo going at the start, a break is going to go and then it will be up to the sprinters' teams wether it comes back together for a win or not."
