Thor Hushovd Takes Sunday's Stage

Thor Hushovd won Sunday's stage 8 of the Tour de France, after the field caught multiple breakaways (in the second picture you can see one of them), and Thomas Voeckler retained the overall lead. There was a crash at the back of the peloton, due to a dog crossing the road at the wrong time, but no one expected to have any affect on the race was hurt. The overall was not affected much at all. Read more here.

The riders traveled by plane to the next stop for tomorrow's rest day.
