Andy Schleck (team Leopard-Trek, of Luxembourg) wins stage 18 of le Tour de France, 2011.

From the SBS le Tour de France iPad app (AU):
Backgrounder Stage 18:

We return to France and there are three very big cols on the menu. The Agnel will be tackled for the first time ever from this side, then there's the Izoard and its legendary Casse D├ęserte, followed by the Galibier. This will be our chance to celebrate the centenary of this mythic climb's first appearance on the race route back in the 1911 Tour de France. In addition, the finish, located at an altitude of 2,645 metres, will be the highest in the race's history. It will remove from the history books the place held since 1986 by the 2,413m Col du Granon. This stage will certainly see a match-up between all those riders who are in contention for the overall title, as will the stage the following day. Whoever is leading the race runs the risk of succumbing to such physical demands.
