Stage 10: Another Big Name.

14 Jul

Wow.  Again.  It’s a good thing Bastille Day is not a Spanish holiday, or that Alberto Contador is not French.  The past champion and serious contender for this year’s victory– yet another big name of Le Tour overall– is out of the race after a serious crash and valiant yet unsuccessful attempt to continue on.  A fractured tibia and bike racing, however, just don’t mix.

At least a Frenchman wore le maillot jaune on this Bastille Day, just before returning it to the man from whom he took it yesterday. With mountainous stage 10 largely considered the hardest thus far, safe to say tomorrow’s rest day hasn’t come at all too soon.  From there, given the constantly changing dynamics of this crazy Tour, all bets are off.
