Watching the riders encourage and escort Jaja toward the end of the stage today was one of the finest moments I've seen in many a sporting occasion.
The way riders came up and congratulated him and showed respect was heart warming. I really, really, hate to see him give up the game. Hope he can keep the polka dot jersey. The guy really has heart and its such a pleasure to see the peleton acknowledge that.

He really cracked. Armstong group passed him with 5K to go & he ended up 11 minutes behind Lance.

Class act though.

yea he's a scrapper for 36. He knew he'd blow, he got huge points for those first climbs and hopefully can maintain that Polka Dot Shirt.
