Another dude got nailed by a car. I'm really surprised we haven't heard more about this..

Quote:

Bozic, who rides for Astana, had resumed racing after a toilet break early on Monday's 207 km stage from Vise to Tournai in Belgium when he was hit from behind by a race officials' car.

Having reached a speed of "40 to 45 km/h", the 31-year-old was sent flying and his bike was crushed under the chassis.

I have those pedals, and seeing that is pretty scary.. if that was a body part...

am missing english commentary, but i can figure out what's going on easy enough.

at least i don't have to put up with phil&paul-isms.

off to lyon today, riding stage 11 on Sunday.

hoping to get to the time trial and then the stage the day after, and then the one after that which is the one we're riding.


that sounds great dart! Let us know how you go after the ride!

3hour French class over. Heading home for dinner and to down some beers. yessssss.

he shouldn't be sooking. Chav is lucky he's not injured and can race in the olympics.

Apparently Rupert Guiness had an issue with security, couldn't get into the media area and subsequently missed the finish. So he was having a sook and Tomalaris was apologising to him when the camera's cut. Pretty funny.

I wonder how Robbie Hunter has pulled up today, he took a HEAVY fall in the crash. Bounced off the road twice.

another day, another stage!!

WOOP! what's on the menu today?



another stage built for cav, can anyone get close to him? i guess today we'll see.

initially i really thought that sky having to support both wiggins and cav in an attempt to get the green and the yellow jerseys could really affect both their chances, however seeing just how fast cav is, i'm not sure he needs as much help and will still blitz all the other riders from whatever position he's in (unless he's caught up in a crash)

It'll definitely affect Wiggins chances against Cadel.

only 5 dedicated to Wiggins now vs the whole team dedicated to Cadel

Should really take more interest in this forum given my love for le tour!

Really looking forward to the week ahead starting Saturday. Has been a seriously nervous first week. I think Cadel has shown, once again, that he is a class GC rider. Staying out of trouble and keeping out of the way of crashes. Wiggins on the other hand has shown his racing nous is a real weakness, stage 3 was a real example of this. Cadel right at the front mixing it up, while Wiggo was getting busy getting stuck behind crashes. Yes part of it is luck, but not all of it.

I really want to see Goss, or anyone from Greenedge for that matter, win a stage or two. Probably not alone on that one!

Does anyone get really sick of Ligget and Sherwin? God they are horrible commentators. Their lack of cycling knowledge is astounding sometimes....

Tip for tonight's stage: anyone but Cav! Would be nice to see a break get up.

Yeah I don't see the break getting up tonight unless there is a crash in the peloton.

I'd be putting my house on Cav.
