Dave Zabriskie also crashes out today, with a possible head injury. The unlucky Christian Vande Velde crashed too. No word on his status.

It will be hard not to if he doesn't crash badly. Some nobodies could even podium at this point as I still don't have much faith in Basso and Cuddles.

If he's not injured (and I don't think he is) he's got a great chance for that. I think unless Andy and Alberto get in trouble the third spot is between him Evans and Frank (and if he is back on form after the crash Basso).

these idiots don't deserve to catch the break
No, it was the right thing to do. Soft pedal for a while, and then continue racing. Unlike last year when they neutered a stage.

The gap is well within Sherwen's Law, anything could happen. If they ride fast enough to bring it back I'm not sure Thor will be able to follow.

OK, we are racing again now. Panic over.
until there is a descent in damp conditions apparently. my larger concern is that canc. seems to be that willing to openly tilt the terms of racing in his team's favor in ways that no one else seems to. it's a rather one sided view he has of etiquette, imo.

i'll shut up now. i am not here to cause a fuss.

So the race is on, they might even catch break. A lot of riders was behind, so you can't really blame the peloton for slowing down. They solved tis perfectly IMO.

Way too far down.
2 1/2 minutes. Depending on how things (or riders) fall, he could make that up in the high mountains.

EDIT: The operative word being could. IOW, too soon to count him out completely, IMO.

Name another Tdf where there was not carnage in the first week. You have 30 years experience. Name One. You can't. End of.
