Latest from the Tour

George Hincapie has become the first team-mate of Lance Armstrong to win a stage of the Tour since 1999, winning stage 15 today. Although Hincapie has enjoyed team time trial success before, this is his first individual stage win in the Tour de France. Armstrong has further solidified his hold on the tour, and barring unforseen circumstances, should ride down the Champs Elysee wearing the yellow jersey next Sunday. He is now 2 min. 46 sec. ahead of Ivan Basso of Spain in the General Classification.
