But for now, here's a quick recap (GO PHIL!!!!):

june 10th 2009

A long breakaway wins !

Saint-Georges, June 10, 2009 - The second stage Thetford Mines / Thetford Mines, was new this year, and worried most of the riders not so much by its newness but by the light rain that was falling in the stadium parking lot this morning.

It was Darren Lapthorne (AUS – Rapha Condor), Phil Cortes (CAN – Garneau-Club Chaussure) and Peter Stetina (USA Felt Holowesko Parners-Garmin U23) who ascended to the podium this time. They completed this 160.6 km stage in 4 hours 1 minute and 22 seconds.

The yellow jersey and the white jersey for the points leader remained with Danilo Wyss (SUI – BMC Racing), the red jersey for the best young rider and the polka dot jersey for the best climber also stayed in the hands of Chad Beyer (USA - BMC Racing).

A more complete version will be posted on the Tour de Beauce website around 6 PM.
