Well, more like "he bites the road", but whatever.
Anyway, I don't like him, but he's a ****ing fighter - he crashed into a parked motorcycle today at full speed with ~10km to go in a 26km time trial, and still finished the stage despite being covered in blood, a broken nose and who knows what else and still defended his leader's jersey. Incredible. That's the stuff that really makes me feel like a wimp.
I hope they let him ride in the Tour again some time in the future.
