2011 Tour De France Standings Update After Stage 1

With one stage in the books in the 2011 Tour de France, Philippe Gilbert holds a three second lead over the field after surviving chaos late in the race on Saturday and powering to the finish. A crash near the end of the race wiped out much of the field, including favorite Alberto Contador. The wipe-out cost Contador 1:20 in race time, though he'll likely be able to make up the difference as the race hits the mountains.

On Sunday, it's all about teamwork in the Tour de France, or at least more so than usual. The team trial is set for Sunday morning, with teams simultaneously hitting the course and racing the clock. It's an opportunity for some of the top teams to make-up some time in both the individual and team races.

Here is the overall individual standings after the first stage. Phillippe Gilbert is in the yellow jersey, and technically holds the green and polkadot jerseys, after the first stage.

And here is where the teams stand after one day of racing. Most teams are in a large group six seconds off the pace; one stage is hardly enough to determine anything of value in the Tour de France.
