Bala Verde said:+1... that's what I saw... I mentioned it in an earlier post. It looked like he bonked on that last incline
well not really, it was obvious he wasn't going to get back on and sat up. if in the bunch he would have been protected and wouldnt have been expending so much energy. fact is if the group he was in would have caught up there is no way cav would have won. i doubt cav would have won today anyway. but to get the slagging off from people today is ludicrous. leipheimer (who i dont like) and basso came out well from today, at least sitting up when they realised the maglia rosa was involved in a crash-that could have gained both of those valuable time (they were both in a group of 10ish clear) but lpr went down even further today.
