Yahoo! Sport | Lastras wins 18th Tour stage

American Lance Armstrong's race lead over arch-rival Jan Ullrich was dented when the German unexpectedly took part in an intermediate sprint, forcing the four-times Tour champion to react.

Australian Robbie McEwen won the sprint but Ullrich was second and Armstrong third.

As a result, the German took two seconds off the Texan to trail him by 65 seconds before a decisive 49-km time trial between Pornic and Nantes on Saturday.
