A KANGAROO LEAPS AHEAD. Australian Robbie McEwen got his second Tour de France stage victory of the year, winning the stage-ending bunch sprint three bike lengths ahead of his rivals. This is the second time McEwen, dubbed "pocket rocket Robbie," has beaten world sprint champ and current Yellow Jersey wearer Tom Boonen across the finish line. I bet Boonen is getting steamed about this. He'll have another chance to best the Aussie in Stage 5 on Thursday, which is another stage set up for a sprint finish.


STAYING YELLOW. This the first day the Yellow Jersey has not changed hands, er, backs. Tom Boonen keeps it...for now.

AMERICANS BIDING TIME. No significant change in the overall standings; Americans George Hincapie (down 5 seconds) is in third and Floyd Landis (down seven seconds) is in ninth--well situated. Levi Leipheimer is well within stiking distance.

GREEN, TOO. McEwen is wearing the Green Jersey (Maillot Vert) as the sprint points leader for the second day in a row.
