O'Grady picks up 8 sprint points, but...

Stuart O'Grady picked his breakaway pretty well today, and is likely to make up some ground in the green jersey competition, but the FDJeux.com team placed a rider, Carlos da Cruz, in the same break, and da Cruz nipped O'Grady at both intermediate sprints, limiting him to 4 points at each (and picking up 6 pts each time for himself).

Another good example of the teamwork in the Tour, and of limiting the damage your opponents can do.
