2011 Tour de France Standings Update, Stage 18

After Andy Schleck's victory in Stage 18 of the 2011 Tour de France, Thomas Voeckler's overall lead in the tour standings keeps shrinking, with Andy Schleck now just 15 seconds off the pace. Andy's brother Frank took second place and Cadel Evans third in Stage 18, and are now each within 75 seconds of Voelcker, who finished fifth in the stage, behind the Schlecks, Evans, and Ivan Basso. The full results of the stage are here, and here's Kevin McCauley's recap of the stage.

Stage 19 is short (109.5 kilometers) but brutal. It begins with a 14-kilometer descent, but features two tough climbs in quick succession. Then there's a long descent before a third tough climb toward the finish. It will be a great stage for the climbers. Here's Podium Cafe's preview of what to expect

The stage will be broadcast at 8:00 AM Eastern on Versus, with rebroadcasts at noon, 2:30 PM and 8:00 PM, and at midnight on Saturday.
