Team Garmin is proving to the world that racing clean, lean and with the best technology gives them an edge. In yesterday’s 208km stage of the Tour de France, Team Garmin’s Will Frischkorn gave it his all to lead a remarkable breakaway. Check out the recaps from Sports Illustrated and the Wall Street Journal. While Will was going all out, his teammates David Millar (far left) and Christian Vande Velde were able to conserve some pedal power for today’s 29.5km time trial. Before the action kicked off, the media had picked reigning world time-trial champ Fabian Cancellara as the favorite. The Swiss rider pointed to Millar has his main rival. In the end, Stefan Schumacher of Germany was the surprise winner and Team Garmin maintained their first place team standing in the GC (general classification) with Millar finishing 3rd today for 3rd place overall and Vande Velde finishing 7th today, placing him in 6th place overall. With 19 stages to go, Team Garmin is looking strong and already garnering quotes such as this from the Wall Street Journal: “Perhaps no team in this year’s Tour de France has seen a faster rise in pro cycling than the Garmin-Chipotle outfit.” Be sure to watch the coverage tonight on the Versus network, which broadcast today’s stage live from the Team Garmin car.
