How did he not make that break, was it just bad positioning because he just latched back onto the peleton?

EDIT: Hincapie is leading the chase group at a minute back, if they keep screwing around he may be able to catch them.

That was scary, looked like it freaked Boonen out as well. They said it may of been a kid that was hit

Wow I would of thought Pozzato or Hushov would of hammered it when Boonen flatted, that was their chance to get rid of him, will they regret at the end of the race?
