|Tack in the tire
Crowd control is difficult on these stretches narrow road, thousands of fans mull all over sometimes opening what looks like only the barest of gaps for the cyclists to pass through. Cadel Evans suffered three punctures and had to wait for his team to arrive to get a new tire, maybe he should consider not abandoning them as he often does in the mountains. Hincapie is on his team for a reason, not to be left behind. Wiggins proved how truly civil the Brits are by slowing down the race until Evans could catch up. One can only wonder if Evans would have done the same thing if their positions had been reversed. I am not a big fan of Cadel Evans, in case anybody was wondering.
Congratulations to Luis Leon Sanchez for winning the stage! Rabbobank deserved the win.
