Look who lost a bunch of time today...Dwayne Barry

Guerini lost 7 minutes or so. Given that he had great form at the pre-tour races, I wonder if he lost time intentionally to give himself the space for another run at Alp d'Huez on Sunday?
I think he was helping Zable try to get back after his prang-nmnoveread

Yep. He towed Zabel in after Zabel's crash. n/mfracisco

of all the riders to send back to help get your sprinter back up to the bunch, you send a 125 pound climber and no-one else for flat run-in?
It happened so close to the finish there was no way Zabel was ever going to get back in it. I suspect Guerini either dropped off intentially or was also involved in a crash.
It must have been him.fracisco

There was another Telekom rider in addition to Zabel in the crash. It probably was Guerini.
