Welcome to the post-Astana order

Dopers SuckWithout Astana in the standings and assuming that Vino is stripped of his wins (still no B-test yet, so speculative):

...Cadel Evans gets his first stage win for the Stage 13 TT.

...Kim Kirchen gets his first stage win as well for Stage 15.

...In the overall, Sastre is now a top-five rider and Valverde and Popo are once again top ten:

1 Michael Rasmussen (Den) Rabobank 69.52.14
2 Alberto Contador Velasco (Spa) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 2.23
3 Cadel Evans (Aus) Predictor - Lotto 4.00
4 Levi Leipheimer (USA) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 5.25
5 Carlos Sastre Candil (Spa) Team CSC 6.46
6 Haimar Zubeldia Agirre (Spa) Euskaltel - Euskadi 7.27
7 Kim Kirchen (Lux) T-Mobile Team 8.24
8 Mikel Astarloza Chaurreau (Spa) Euskaltel - Euskadi 9.21
9 Alejandro Valverde Belmonte (Spa) Caisse d'Epargne 10.41
10 Yaroslav Popovych (Ukr) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 12.29

...Astana had a 3.24 lead in the team competition -- the top four is now more compact:

1 Euskaltel-Euskadi
2 Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team 1.27
3 Team CSC 1.55
4 Caisse D’epargne 2.32
