Arvesen wasn't the only one. Steven Cozza of Garmin also left the race with a broken collarbone.
How many times has Cozza broken his collarbone? It seems like it happens every year.
 
Atleast this opens up for more stage wins for Sky, as no one will care if any of their riders attacks. My guess is that EBH will get at least 2 stages, unless he's in bad shape (which wouldn't be too weird, considering he's been training in Norway and the temperature has mostly been between 15 and 30 degrees below zero).

So if he doesn't get the two stage wins, it's because of the weather in Norway?

I think anyone knows in qatar you have to be near the front.. hanging around at the back and waiting for the last ten k simply does not work...

Unless there was a major reason that was embarassing..
+1 agreed Dimspace.Even the mighty TEAM SKY can make mistakes.........I thought CERVELO road really well today considering yesterdays TTT.......

Haussler is a classy rider and the entire team has a great attitude. Pondered for a brief few on quitting the TOQ, but channeled their anger into payback. Good on 'em and here's to another successful spring for Haussler!

For those living in Australia, and you have cable, look for the Eurosport channel and they have daily highlights several times a day. I guess it has to be good for something.

yes they are going well. i think they could do well in qatar with the crosswinds. looking good for classics the bmc boys are! Some good racing will eventuate if the splits and crosswinds continue. Sky will surely be alert for today's stage and will proably try to split it up to repair some of the damage of yesterday.

Of course not, wasn't directed at anyone, just completing the LA comment satire. :)
