    This is what someone who is about to crash sounds like:

    from VDV
    I am nowhere near 100 percent, Vande Velde said "Its getting better, but I need the first week to pass so I can heal up, and Im not optimistic to recover over the (stage 3) cobblestones.

    I need to get through stage 2 and stage 3 without any crashes, Vande Velde said. I have a healthy fear of the cobblestone stage. Once you get on the cobbles, its hard, but the real fight is where you are entering. Its going to be a free-for-all. And we havent even talked about what will happen if it rains.

    oi. not good. does not sound confident. and when you start worrying about crashing we all know what happens...

    it's too bad. I really like the Garmin team. They seem like a good group of lads, and every time I hear VDV do an interview he come across as being very grounded .... errrr, poor choice of words... you know what I mean. But I don't think his heads on straight. Maybe Millar can give him a pep talk.

    and as much as I'm rooting for him, I don't think Farrar is getting around Cav.

    More like: "this is the name of someone who is about to crash." I thought about starting a thread taking bets on when Vande Velde will crash out. I'm going to say that he will survive the cobbles but will crash out before the first mountain stage.

    Odd, I'd think if you were about to crash, you'd sound like "oh s---." Or perhaps "fils de salope" or "qu chingado," depending on your nation of origin....

    That's what I'm thinking too.

    Que chingado. Hilarious.

    it is the Tour de FRANCE after all
