Week three of the Tour de France and the drama rises. It's not just about the tense duel for the yellow jersey or the no holds barred scramble for green, a thousand different sub-plots make up the multi-layered narrative of this great race.

Every rider at the Tour has a different story to tell and each of the images in these galleries paints a tale of its own. We'll continue to update each rider's gallery throughout the race and add a few more to the list as we get nearer to Paris, where the 2010 Tour de France champion will be crowned.
