Tonkov totally dropped off all the results lists for today's stage (on Giro website and Velonews), yet I see no mention of him abandoning.

Strange, since he's been riding in the top 10, you'd think his departure would be at least worthy of a mention. Anyone know what happened to him? Barry

has him as DNF, I suspect after that long and futile solo break trying to repeat last year's glorious stage win he may well have bonked and found the going tougher than he cared to take?

CCC lured him they needed big name to get invited to Giro. no surprize he didn't care. When he quit it didn't look like he bonked, he just called it quits.
