How 'bout that Fränk Schleck?

As much as I enjoyed Floyd's stage 17 triumph and Rasmussen's ride on 16, Schleck's win on Alpe D'Huez was brillant. The guy turned pro in 2003 and finished 11th overall. Not too shabby.

Frank is an up-and-comer. He'll probably be a team leader in a couple years.

I think he needs a bit more practice zipping up the jersey before crossing the finish line. I was very concerned he was going to wind up looking unprofessional. He got the job done in the end, though.
