Stage 16: Oldest Guy First

Bagneres-de-Luchon-->Pau, 199.5km, 124 miles

I like how the oldest guy in the race, Christophe Moreau (FRA, Caisse D'Epargne), topped the mountain first. Though he didn't win the stage, he was in the lead group, and because their wheels all overlapped they all got the same time. Lance Armstrong, probably the second oldest guy in the race at the age of 38, was also in the group.

Amazingly enough, Moreau ended up getting overall second in the King of the Mountains category. That's something else, considering the guy is only 4 years younger than I am.
