Andy Schleck’s big move helps him close in on Tour De France lead

Andy Schleck

Andy Schleck went for all the marbles on Thursday in Stage 18 of the Tour de France. While he didn’t secure the yellow jersey by winning the the Tour’s highest finish ever at Galibier Serre-Chevalier, he might have taken the big step necessary to clinch the overall win.

Schleck made his move on the second climb of the day. It left Spaniards Sammy Sanchez and Alberto Contador, as well as his brother Frank and Cadel Evans, in the dust. Although the gritty leader Thomas Voeckler finished close enough to keep the yellow jersey, Andy Schleck is second and seems poised to take over the lead in Friday’s stage, which includes the famous finish at Alpe d’Huez.
