Andy Schleck took Stage 17, and he did it riding closely with Alberto Contador. The two are good friends, as Contador says on his Twitter page, and the respect between them was visible today. Contador could have sprinted at the end of the climb to try to win the day, but he showed that he didn't want to take away from the hard work that Schleck did to set the pace for the peloton. Contador now holds the yellow jersey.
