King Rolland crowned on the Alpe, but team-mate Voeckler loses yellow to Andy Schleck

Andy Schleck in lead, Tour de France 2011, stage 19

"The Tour is won on the Alpe," wrote French journalist Jean-Paul Vespini in his 2008 book of the same name. But despite Friday's hugely exciting stage, which finished atop the mythical mountain of Alpe d'Huez, it looks like this year's Tour will be won on the roads around Grenoble in Saturday's time trial.

It was the end of the affair for Europcar's Thomas Voeckler, who lost his yellow jersey to Leopard-Trek's Andy Schleck on the 109.5km route between Modane Valfréjus and Alpe d'Huez, but with Cadel Evans (BMC) now in third place overall, just 57 seconds down on the young Luxemburger, with Andy's older brother Frank now in second, just four seconds ahead of Evans, there is all still to play for in 'the race of truth' on the penultimate stage of the race over 42.5km.
