COL DU GALIBIER, France – In the 18th stage of the Tour de France, Leopard Trek rider Andy Schleck threw caution to the wind, flying free of the main field with almost fourty miles of alpine riding left to go. Determination carried him across the finish line in first place on the stage and into second place overall. Schleck’s daring attack could prove to be the defining moment of the 2011 Tour de France.
