    Ouch...when will it stop? (Possible Stage 9 spoilers / crash photos)

    Saw this link on velonews' tour coverage-

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/gall...ture=330211215

    Marcus Burghardt nails a dog that ran on to the course. Nothing like a few days of bad luck after a stage win to knock a team down a few pegs! T-Mobile isn't getting any breaks...

    BTW - looks like the dog is ok. Look at how that wheel breaks...insanity.

    edit: mods, I didn't post this fast enough...someone already linked to it in the Stage 9 discussion thread. Sorry!

    OMG! That SUCKS!

    Has that ever happened before. I know fans get in the way sometimes, but wandering animals? Find that dogs owner and throw them down the Col du Galimbier head first. Help control the pet population, have dumb pet owners spayed or neutered.
    "What makes a great endurance athlete is the ability to absorb potential embarrassment, and to suffer without complaint. I was discovering that if it was a matter of gritting my teeth, not caring how it looked, and outlasting everybody else, I won. It didn't seem to matter what sport it was--in a straight-ahead, long-distant race, I could beat anybody. If it was a suffer-fest, I was good at it."

    Yeah it seemed like he wasn't scuffed up too badly, surprisingly enough. I didn't catch the interview though, what'd he have to say Botto?

    Poor T-Mobile really can't catch a break during this tour!

    And Rogers looked really good before crashing out of the TdF, which I imagine makes it worse
