    Graham Watson spreads a rumor....

    Seeing as CA have already won a stage it's not been very successful has it?
    What was Thor meant to do then?, think 'oh I ride for a French team, I'd better not sprint too hard and win the stage, that'll teach those Frenchies a lesson they won't forget'
    I grew up as a kid idolising those hero's in the Tour de France, Indurain and everyone like that. It was almost a childhood dream to ride the Tour de France. The last 2 years my childhood dream which became a reality has been pissed all over by certain members of the peloton. - Bradley Wiggins 27th July 2007.

    It doesn't take any effort for French riders to do poorly in the Tour de France. The French riders have been skillfully losing the Tour year after year for about two decades.

    Yup, nobody wanted to (or perhaps could?) help Moreau today. The most interesting part of today's stage was Contador getting a puncture on the final climb, and still almost getting back to his group! He could be the man this wide-open year.
