CRASH!!

 

Vino left the road on a descent.

He is placed in an ambulance - something looks broken.

 

Van der broeck minutes later still dazed sitting next to the road - he is out of the Tour as fas I can see.

Peloton called truce to not race until all the survivors of the crash rejoins.

 

This slowdown doubles the lead of the 4 man group which includes the firey Voeckler and Flecha from Sky.

Tommie could find himself in yellow this evening... :rolleyes:

In the aforementioned crash, Zabriskie also got hurt,

 

He is dizzy and cannot continue. <_< :unsure:

Van der Broeck - broken collarbone.

 

Omega-Pharmacy Lotto loses a key rider.

Hmmm....

One looong worm the main bunch have become.

Which means one thing - the chase has begun reeling back the powerful breakaway group who is ahead by 7:30.

 

Eyeballs to the screen now - 82 kms left.

:blush:

Voeckler was only 1:19 down on Hushovd coming into the stage, so his chances look good.

:clap:

C'mon Voeckler!!

 

The peleton busy closing the gap. This is his third break this week and the previous two times he was caught in the last 2kms. The more the peleton gets organised the more I'm starting to worry that he'll suffer the same fate today. I need stage wins from him!! He needs to finish 90 seconds before Thor to get yellow. I'll settle for that as well. :D

Oh, and really sad news for Vino! Such an exiting rider!

 

He said this was his last Tour, right?

I think the extent of his injury spells the end of his cycling career.

Yah, this was his last tour.

It is eina that he could not finish... :(
