Tour Update

It appears as though our favorite for the Tour will have to wait until next year to have a chance at the yellow jersey. Injuries sustained from a crash in the 5th stage, including deep gashes in both knees which needed stitches, kept Vinokourov from staying with the leaders in yesterday's 9th stage. He starts the 10th stage 8 minutes back from the leader which will probably prove to be too much. We are crying with you Vino.

Now I guess we will pull for the climber Rasmussen (Team RaboBank) to build a big enough lead in the mountains that it will hold up through his below average time trialing skills.

your new pick looks very sickly. i'm quite concerned for his looks as though he hasn't eaten since 1998.
