Tour de France - Stage 1
Word Press ^ | July 4, 2010 | Todd Kinsey

Good morning. Nothing too notable this morning other than a dog running onto the course which cause a crash early on. Several riders have been rotating back to get medical treatment including Ivan Basso and David Millar.

We have a 3 man break that includes Lars Boom (Rabobank), Maarten Wijnants (QuickStep) and Alan Perez Lezaun (Euskaltel) with a gap of just over 4 minutes. There’s still about 100K or 60 miles remaining. Neither the peloton or the break is working very hard but this is just the calm before the storm.

Unfortunately the two riders that crashed yesterday, Mathias Frank (BMC) and Manuel Cardoso (Footon) were unable to start.

Check back soon as the race continues to develop.
