Landis wins 17th stage, Pereiro retains yellow jersey
MORZINE, France (Reuters) - American Floyd Landis won the
17th stage of the Tour de France, a 200.5-km ride from St Jean
de Maurienne to Morzine on Thursday.
Spaniard Oscar Pereiro Sio retained the overall leader's
minutes and 42 seconds behind Landis. France's Christophe
Moreau took third, 5:58 off the pace.
Friday's 18th stage will be the last chance for the
secondary riders to take their share of the limelight before
Saturday's decisive time trial.
