SPECIAL NOTE: To get updates from me on the capturing, editing, and compression process of the torrents, you can get more information by visiting a Twitter page I created at [url]http://twitter.com/TourTorrents[/url]. I've never used Twitter before, so I'll be learning as I go. I created this so that you will all have a good idea on when to expect the torrents in the coming weeks.
TORRENT NOTE: This video has been edited with no commercials and covers the entire race live, no highlights. Part 1 & Part 2 are separate files so that you can download Part 1 first to watch the race while you are downloading Part 2. All coverage is live and none of the race was removed during the commercial removal process. Enjoy.
STAGE 18 DETAILS:
Type: Individual time-trial
Date: Thursday, July 23, 2009
Weather Cloudy with a Chance of Rain
Start And Finish: Annecy > Annecy
Distance: 40.5 km (25.16 Miles)
Stage Profile: If the riders have not had a chance to enjoy the scenery then now is the time to pick their head up off their handlebars and look around. Annecy has not been a part of the Tour since 1959 and this year it will host the final 40km time trial around Lake Annecy. Lake Annecy is the second largest lake in France and is about 14km long. Around the lake is a bike path but the riders will be racing on the undulating roads including the Cote de Super Tallories and the smaller Col de Bluffy. On their way in and out of the city they will pass by Annecy’s Chateau’s, arched bridges dating to the 17th century, the European Gardens, and the Imperial palace.
In the final time trial of the Tour we have had multiple winners over the years. In 2008 Stefan Schumacher won but later was disqualified giving Fabian Cancellera the honor. Then counting down the years we have Levi Leipheimer, Serguei Gonchar, and a run of final time trial wins by Lance Armstrong from 2005-1999. That consecutive streak was only broken for one year when David Millar won in 2003. Going further back Jan Ullrich won in 1998 and 1996 with Abraham Olano winning in 1997.
Normally the final TT is the last showdown between the riders who have a chance to win the Tour de France. This year that will all change because of the inclusion of Mont Ventoux on stage 20.
