First sprint a biggie

Today's first intermediate sprint was in Montendre, and it affected both the race for the green jersey, and for yellow.

Robbie McEwen was first across the line, winning 6 pts. He and Baden Cooke are now tied at 169 pts in first for the green jersey.

Jan Ullrich actually went after the sprint points, and was shadowed by Armstrong. Ullrich took 4 points (and the associated 4 second bonus), and Armstrong took 2 pts (and 2 seconds).

As a result, Ullrich's 1:07 gap is now a 1:05 gap.
