Most intriguing Tour news of the day, from

Tour podium girl kicked out

Only three of the four Credit Lyonnais podium girls made it to the Champs-Elysées yesterday. Blond podium
girl Alicia was thrown out of the Tour this week. The official version has it that she "kept stacking up the
mistakes". But behind the scenes, the story is that she kept smiling and kissing off the podium too, with a
cyclist that never came close to wearing the Yellow Crédit Lyonnais jersey. It's in the girls' contracts that they
can't socialize with the riders in that way.

It's not an isolated case of butterflies kicking in during a big tour. There's always a good gossip for grabs after
the Tour has left the Champs-Elysées. "Alicia wasn't kicked out because of that," her visibly offended
ex-colleagues told the Belgian Press. "And even if she was, is it forbidden to fall in love? Christophe Moreau
fell in love with one of the Tour Misses years ago, and they are still together!"

"Of course we get looked at," the interviewee continued. "But not only by the cyclists, mostly by the
journalists! Three weeks away from the wife, hey!"
