Vaughter's team blew through the finish led by Christian Vandevelde to set a time that would put an Argyle in the Maglia Rosa by the end of the stage in spite of the best efforts of team CSC, High Road, Liquigas and Danilo Di Luca's LPR crew.

Christian Vandevelde is the first American to wear the Maglia Rosa since Andy Hampsten's epic victory on the Gavia Pass in 1988 and his final and only American victory in the Italian tour.
