Refill day.

Actually not. With the Pyrenees already over, what are they going to do? A refill would come too early for the Alps or the last ITT.

Even refill day is neutered in this year's TdF. What a bore. No one going to drop out due to stomach problems on Tuesday.

Boogerd was commenting live on dutch TV the past couple of days.

Why oh why didn't they invite him back today. Would've made for a fun first-hand reaction when the commentators broke the news :D
