Christophe Moreau, the perennial "best Frenchman," was best of the whole day for the second time in this year's Dauphine-Libere. Even better, he hit peak form in the granddaddy of all stages, the climb to the summit of Mt. Ventoux.
The Americans held their own, the Kazakhs all but imploded, and there were a few surprises, too.
The stage put the overall for this race totally up for grabs, as there are now 6 riders within 53 seconds of each other at the top of the standings.
