Enquiry into crash/finish - times on hold!Ridearound

This live from French radio.

"There is a suspicion that the "crash" was staged, and in the ensuing confusion, a USPS team body double was swapped onto Lance Armstrong's bike, to finish the stage.

TDF genetics experts are currently running a DNA test on the saddle and shorts to ascertain the identity of the rider who crossed the line first.

An eye witness reports seeing a man in a yellow jersey, near the crash site, sneaking into the back of a team vehicle in a "preposterous" disguise of a stipey t-shirt, beret with a stalk in the top, and some onions."

At least, I think that's what they said....
