Poor George crashed yesterday. It would have been a good chance for him to gain some ground on Museeuw. THe race report 1st reported that GH might have broken his collarbone, luckily he did NOT break anything. They say his knee is messed up and that the rest of the season might be in jeopardy.

Maybe next year.

Yeah, I feel sorry for George. He has had probably the best form of his career — well enough for him to keep up with the Postal train up into the lower mountains and early mountain stages during the Tour de France. It must have really heartened Lance to see George and the rest of the team supporting him with such strength in the mountain passes. George was ranked third in the World Championship points race and probably would have made up some ground with a strong finish. He had Postal working exclusively for him as the first option and Lance as the second and then he crashes on a descent. It's too bad. You know George was planning to repeat at the San Francisco Grand Prix. Now we don't know if he will even be able to race it. At least he didn't break anything.
