CSC’s perennial attacker Jens Voigt was at it again on Friday but despite several good efforts, including his presence in a 70 kilometre break, he couldn’t make it work this time.

"Jens tried all he could to make the decisive break,” said CSC directeur sportif Kim Andersen. “He made several attempts, but the groups he was in were never allowed to get far. As it didn't appear to be our day in the breaks, we concentrated on saving our strength and getting through the day as painless as possible."

Voigt’s teammate Carlos Sastre remained fifth overall after the stage.
