ToG Stage 2: Voigt

Voigt, Kashechkin and Rebellin rolled into the finishing city, barely holding off a charging peloton. Voigt attacked going into the final corner, Kashechkin seemed to be out of gas, and Rebellin had a shot, but his rear wheel slid out going through the turn, which gave Voigt plenty of room for the victory. It was a well-earned victory for Voigt, who had to bridge up to Kashechkin and Rebellin, who had attacked on the Cat 2 Bockswiese climb.

The breakaway managed to hold off a chase group of 30 riders by five seconds, perhaps helped by the fact that Discovery had no riders to help out Gusev, who was riding all alone in the yellow jersey. Luckily for Gusev, T-Mobile seemed interested in giving chase, so he was able to ride in their train.
