you will not hear many in the peloton complaining. But I agree, stupid frog.

every racer I've talked to so far has said Nazon is an idiot. Also, when you watch the coverage, Zabel gets pretty pissed off at Nazon. When Zabel gets hit by Nazon he takes Steels out of the picture too.

DQ'ed for the stage!
What?!? Why does Steels get blamed for Nazon's mess-up?jba

What's going on? From what I saw, Nazon cut off Zabel from the right which pushed Zabel into the guy to his left, which I guess was Steels. Isn't that what happened? The report on CyclingNews made no sense. It was clear that Zabel was upset with Nazon's carelesness and not with Steels.

that can't be right Nazon was clearly the bad guy... can't say Zabel was going to catch up, but except for Zabel's exceptional bike handling Nazon would have taken out the front. Is this fallout from the waterbottle incident a few years ago
