Last year's winner of Vuelta a España, Vuelta al País Vasco and Vuelta Ciclista Castilla y León, Alberto Contador, will be taking aim at some big results again this year, but he now has Lance Armstrong looking over his shoulder. (Time will tell whether that's good or bad for Alberto). Both will be at this month's Vuelta Ciclista Castilla y León competing on the same team for the first time.<-->

  Stage 4 ITT Highlights: The Final Riders (10:30 french) — sport+
April 16 update: After the mountaintop finish, we now have some time gaps heading into the stage 4 rolling TT. Rolling as not hilly but not flat either. Actually, there is a good little mesa in the middle of the course that riders will go up and down the other side. Can Igor Anton hang on to his 13 second lead over Alberto Contador? I doubt it but watch and see for yourself. See the race summary table (r) for the stage profile, map, timetable. — Steve

  Stage 2 Final Kilometers (08:13 french) — sport+
April 14 update: The profile for stage 2 is the flattest of all the stages this week, but stage 2 is also by far the longest at 210 km and there is a 60% chance of rain in the forecast. There is small bump inside 10 km to go and then the finish (last km) is dead flat. On paper, it setups up for another sprint finish but the weather could change all that. See the race summary table (r) for the stage profile, map, timetable. — Steve
