213 km break succeeds for Totschnig

34 year-old Georg Totschnig (Gerolsteiner) has won the first Pyrenean stage of the Tour, which finished in the ski station of Ax-3 Domaines after 220.5 hot, hard kilometres. The Austrian crossed the line with 56 seconds to spare over maillot jaune Lance Armstrong (Discovery Channel), who left Ivan Basso (CSC) and Jan Ullrich (T-Mobile) behind on the final slopes of the climb to claim second. Michael Rasmussen (Rabobank) finished 8th at 1'47 and lost a minute to Armstrong on the general classification, but held onto his second place overall.
