We just watched the crash live. Very, very frightening, and now he is out of the race. Lance made a great recovery to get back into the race where he did.

But maybe Tylers chances on the podium just got better. Even though I was not hoping Beloki would win, I hate to see him out like this. He seemed strong.

Its a shame. He was really making this Tour a serious race. I feel bad for the guy.
Be sure to watch it on TV tonight.fracisco

The helicopter was following Armstrong and Beloki as they tried to chase down Vinokorouv, and there is, I hate to say it, excellent video coverage of the crash. Paul and Phil had just mentioned that the heat of the day was causing the tarmac to get soft and oily, and quite dangerous....and no more than a couple of minutes later, the crash.
It was heartbreaking to watch that kid go downCrash

Joseba was riding like a true champion with unbelievable heart. Was really taking the race to Lance (a criticism of him in previous tours). It breaks my heart to see that poor kid have to abandon.
