For which riders will this be their last TdF stage ever?

We know about LA and CM obviously but who else, either through retirement or non selection?

Maybe Koos Moerenhout?He had declared his retirement.:(

It seems there are a lot of teams without much to win or lose on this stage so I hope they get a little crazy and have some fun.:)

This whole tour has been rather lacking in fun.

Can anyone tell me what has happened to Freire this year? I can hardly recall him contesting the sprints but he is still in the race so I presume he will go for it today?

He said something about sinusitis.

Look, it's the last stage, even rs can have a little fun once in a while. let it go.

(And now they are putting the regular jersey on.)

Retirement Shack must've got special dispensation from their mates at the UCI to change their jerseys :rolleyes:

An improvement though. All seem to have 28 on the back??

Nope. They have just been told the won't be allowed to start.:eek:
Lance doesnt seem to want to put his on.

Looks like they have to ride in their gilets. Hope the sun comes out!:D

I think we have a new disease on this forum, Extreme Vino obsession. Seriously, I can't get through three posts in any race thread without someone pouring out their love for him. Oh well, I can't blame you, he is a fun rider.

Well in this case it's granted.

If anyone can repeat a Vino today they will be revered forever.

They should have had permission to do it, which is what I was under the impression they had before the circus broke out.

That wasn't my point (canc awareness). Gosh, dude, give your rage a day off.
