Props to Tommy D.



Dang. I was hoping he would top five this year.

He shouldn't have been in that crash...he's previous day injury was already bad enough to abandon.

He even said "if it was up to him, he would go home." Vaughters is a diaster when in the car. He's built a good program, but should stay admistrative.

Tommy D was coaxed into staying in the race on some fantasy that he could ride through it.

JV's dreadful...it shouldn't be up to Danielson to decide. DS and doctors should.

Edit: Vansummeren next unnecessary casualty?

I saw an interview with Danielson. He said he would have abandoned, but the team persuaded him to stay in.

I didn't expect him to start today. I was a little surprised that Hesjedal abandoned before him.

Is there a minimum number of riders a team must hold to stay in the race. Farrar does not seem to far away from being withdrawal #5

Surely the minimum number is 1 - at least I hope it is - it would be incredibly silly & unfair to kick out riders / teams just because their teammates were caught in crashes...

I'm pretty sure that there's no lower limits for how few riders of a team there must be. Obviously they won't be in for the team GC.

But wouldn't Farrar "only" be withdrawal #4?
