It looks like 3 guys withdrew from the Tour today. Watched Sébastien HINAULT get taken away on a stretcher and ambulance. Yesterday a guy just ran out of juice, stopped, and handed-off his bike to a mechanic and got into the team car. Not to indulge in too much schadenfreude!
I am looking forward to seeing LA pull out of his #6 position. He was in good spirits yesterday, joking with the press.
