TdF Stage 12 : Montpellier - Castres

After the thrilling stage of yesterday everybody expected another exciting race but it turned out to become a normal sprintstage. An early escape with the frenchman Fedrigo and the basque Txurruka, but at 1km before the finish the sprintteams with Quickstep first took them back and it became a sprint with Tom Boonen as the winner, followed by Zabel and Hunter.

For Euskaltel there was of course the sweet escape from Amets Txurruka who drove a great stage and also the 14th place of Isasi in the sprint. Sadly enough Igor Anton left the race yesterday :(
