Right now... I'm sorta feeling more sorry for his roomate. Or the rest of the team if they have a long bus ride to get to their hotel...

But yeah... crashing three days in a row just sucks!

He doesn't sound in a good place mentally from this article, let alone physically.

it is understandable, a whole dry year for a top athlete. And Tyler is a fighter, he will fight back.

Video of Farrar trying to get into the Argos bus, and subsequently being herded back to the Garmin bus.

I believe in a clean sport, cycling isn't it. Still entertaining, though.

It's just... horrible for those guys. Danielson out. Hesjedal lost time.
And I fear Summie might be out too, I saw a bit of an interview where I think he might possibly have said something about fracture...

At least it frees everyone up to go for stage wins, assuming anyone can still ride a bike.

Yes that's about the sum of it.

They are well and truly out of it in GC terms. No chance of their traditional top 10, let alone the better result they were hoping for. One of their potential GC men is out and the other two have lost shedloads of time. Even Dan Martin, who wasn't supposed to be going for GC in the first place, has lost huge amounts of time due to crashes despite not actually hitting the deck himself.

The only team who comes close to them in the bad luck stakes is Rabobank, but even they still have guys in top 10 contention.

They'll be riding like a French wildcard team now, trying to put people in every break. And hopefully they'll go nuts on the climbs with Martin and, if healthy, Hesjedal. They certainly aren't going to be marked for GC purposes.

Tom Veelers would have crushed him. :p I feel for Garmin though, being a Gesink supporter and all. He crashed and lost time today and so has most, of not all, of his teammates. Vive le effin Tour. :o

Now I officialy hate the Tour. I mostly cheered for Hesjedal, and now it's all over. Last year when Contador lost time I wasn't so angry, because he was then a few times GT winner, etc, and I felt, that he is strong enough to take back that time.
But now? I want to say f*** this s***, but I will not, and I hope that tomorrow they will show want they can do. I'm sure that they will attack, and I just hope, that the fate will give them something back.

But until that, **** this **** :(
