Tour 4 : Samuel 21, Haimar disappoints

It was the first time trial challenge in this years Tour de France and it would be the first battle between the favourites. Fabian Cancellara was the topfavourite, but it was the strong German Stefan Schumacher who was the fastest. Among the favourites Kirchen, Evans and Menchov all ended in the top 10. Losers of the day were Valverde and Ricco. Samuel and Mikel did both ok with a 21th and 27th place, but they both can do better. Haimar really disappointed with a 100th place, 3:22 down on Schumacher.
