Lance loses it!Ridearound

Lance goes down, gets up, comes unclipped - it's all going to bits....

Lance is having all sorts of bike problems. WTF? This is not a good demo for new Shimano components. Brakes, pedals, chain derailling... geez.

and brought Lance down. They're saying that the pedal might have been damaged in the crash...
that might have decided the TourSpoiler

The way Phil and Paul were talking, I though his cleat bolts had come lose. I thought, there's no way Ulrich will wait for a shoe change. If Lance can't pull up on the pedal, he can't attack. I'll have to replay it and time how long he was down. Then I thought the whole pedal was lose on the crank.
EXTREMELY sporting from UllrichRidearound

He lets Lance get back in the group again. He could potentially have stuck some big time on him there, that close to the finish -hats off to him.
EXTREMELY sporting - but fitting...James OCLV

Lance did it for him twice... Once when Ullrich crashed, and once when he flatted...
It's an unwritten rule...spyderman

If the wearer of yellow jersey, and only the yellow, crashes the peloton will wait for them to catch up.

No doubt, Ullrich would have done it if Lance was in yellow or not.

I will be buying the CD for this tour!!! I hope they're taking pre-orders...
yes, I'd say they're even now nmDougSloan
