NOCENTINI WINS YELLOW

Brice Feillu of Agritubel took his first ever Tour de France stage win high on the summit of ArcalĂ­s. The young French rider, in his first year as a professional, escaped with the early breakaway and survived to celebrate victory at the finish.

Rinaldo Nocentini of AG2R-La Mondiale, who also rode the break today, takes over the Yellow Jersey of race leader by a slim margin over Alberto Contador. The Spanish climber leapfrogged his team mate Lance Armstrong in the general classification and is now 2 seconds ahead of the American.
