O'Grady tries to take more points

With time ticking down to Sunday's finish on the Champs Elysees, Stuart O'Grady is doing all he can to catch and overtake maillot vert Thor Hushovd (Credit Agricole). The Cofidis rider is a better climber than his rivals Hushovd and McEwen but was unable to get into the points today.

"I knew it would be impossible to stay with the front guys over the top of the climb but I tried to stay with them for as long as possible," he said at the finish. "A few of the guys waited for me, but it was not to be."
