Here are the current standings:

1. HUSHOVD Thor 51 TEAM GARMIN - CERVELO 13h 58' 25"  
2. EVANS Cadel 141 BMC RACING TEAM 13h 58' 26" + 00' 01"

Contador isn't in the top 10, but his near-victory in Stage 4 demonstrated his viability in the race.

The stage still showed that Contador, who has faced a series of early setbacks in this Tour already, is in shape to compete.

Contador did poorly in Stage 1 after getting held up after a crash, but bounced back in Stage 4, nearly beating the field to the line for the win. Evans edged him in a photo finish, but his late-surge put the field on notice in the early stages of the 2011 Tour de France.

Jose Joaquin Rojas still leads the sprint standings, with Evans just two points behind. Of the green jersey contenders, Thor Hushovd has 70 points, followed closely by Garmin-Cervelo teammate Tyler Farrar's 68 points.
