TDF – Post Stage 13 updates

Late updates:

Because I left the office early to take my hubby to lunch in celebration of his birthday, I got a chance to catch a televised re-broadcast of today’s Stage 13. It was, as described earlier, fairly uneventful until the final sprint through the city of Nimes. Rounding a left turn, a Gerolsteiner rider (if I’m not mistaking the jersey) managed to slice his bike in half when he got caught in the wrong spot over the turn post in the road – that cement traffic control structure with a metal post in the middle). The cyclist took a nasty fall, but was up and walking. His bike is toast, but he, fortunately, looked okay. I’m searching for a video that is actually available in my zone – aaaarghhh!

The title sponsor announced they will drop sponsorship of Saunier Duval.
