Does anyone know the true story of what happened to Oscar?
His team's Doctors said it was only nerves. Here is
a guy in 11th place in the Tour at the 15th or 16th
stage and he drops out because of "nerves". Hard to believe.

98km into stage, this is the official explanation at that time:
Oscar Sevilla has been suffering from stomach cramps for two days. He is the 28th rider to retire from the 2002 Tour
It was so he would be fresh for the Vuelta ;)lnin0

and the plan so far looks like it is working. put your money on him as the odds on favorite to take the golden fleece. If not Sevilla then look for Vinokourov to try and show off for his Telekom bosses.
