Stage 7 profile

Today's the last chance for the sprinters for a few days, as the race covers 228.5 kilometers from Lunéville down to Karlsruhe. The riders will cross the Rhine into Germany, the second of only three countries the Tour visits this year (Spain is the third).

Thor Hushovd of Credit Agricole hasn't given up on the green jersey. Yesterday, he got clear of the wreck to take 5th on the stage, getting 22 sprint points, and closed within 7 points of sprint jersey leader Tom Boonen, so Hushovd may look for some intermediate points today.

Your jersey leaders:

Lance Armstrong

Tom Boonen

Karsten Kroon

Yaroslav Popovych
