Petacchi wins it and it will be interesting to see who all crashed. Cavendish was involved in the first crash, the second took out 90 of the peloton, the third took out Tyler Farrar.

WOW!!!

It was a bike race.

Peloton = field, or group.

The second crash took out 90 of the contestants.

It seems to be a story about a bicycle race somewhere. Care to provide some detail?

Good thing it was just bikes, or they could have ended up on the bonnet of a lorry.

Tour de France, for those who don’t keep up with sports.

In other sports news, I read where an NFL quarterback was in court last week for dope smoking, with his pregnant wife getting the second hand smoke.

Just missed it, my wife called me from the living room to see it whilst I was FReeping and watching Phil Keaggy videos on YouTube.

I'll have to watch the replays on cable later today.

Thanks for posting it!

Tour de France. You are either interested or you are not. If you are, Versus (Vs.) channel is the place to be. I got addicted about 3 years ago. Treatment doesn’t help.

spandex-clad bike racing sissies make the Busch sisters look manly in comparison.

LOL

over the years the stock car boys have gotten pretty good at the road courses

in the old days Dan Gurney or Mario Andretti could pop in and pretty much dominate on a road course (like Riverside)

now the regulars run up front pretty much all the time

The Dog and the first crash

Two other crashes occurred after this one in the last 1 km or so.

Bet you Fabian Cancellara missed the accident because he pressed the button on his brake lever and rocketed away :)

Versus commercial break cut-aways this year are terrible. The announcers are not able to do segues or lead-ins to commercial breaks. Production control just arbitrarily cuts in mid-scene. Really bad editing. Greedy folks.
