More Bad News for T-Mob

While many riders still had to finish their stage the news reached us that T-Mobile's Patrick Sinkewitz collided with a spectator while returning to the team hotel in the valley. Sinkewitz had finished at 19'17" and he rode back on the same road as the race was using, as often happens after a mountain top finish. Sinkewitz was reported to have hurt his head, possibly breaking his nose while the spectator involved was brought over to the hospital of Grenoble with a helicopter; the man was reported to have severe injuries. As a result of that incident the evacuation away from the finish in Tignes was jammed while the T-Mobile team was dealt another blow.

Read something about the incident I believe over on Velo News a bit earlier.

Shame that he was able to finish the stage but couldn't even make it back to the team hotel.

I guess we'll learn his status sometime tonight or tomorrow, eh?
