Real shame that Dale lose Ted King due to time cut on the TTT stage. The guy suffered from crash in stage 1.

Did anyone see the shot of the Orica Greenedge bus stuck under the finish line. Looks like a scene in the US where trucks try to go under low bridges and get stuck!

The president of the jury isn't doing much to ingratiate himself with cycling fans this year... Seems unnecessarily harsh to cut someone with an injury who missed the cut by such a small margin.

Looked like the bus tried to go under the "apparatus" or clock at the finish line and got stuck under it. As the US coverage ended this afternoon they showed the bus and it looked like a piece of metal fell next to it. You could see the bus driver holding his head in embarrassment. As they were pulling away there was an overhead shot and it looked like the bus was about 4-6 feet under and stuck.

:unbelievable:

Sorry dude, I was joking. Everyone who knows what a road bike is has seen it.

I wouldn't say "everyone" - just people who have been keeping up with the Tour and are up to date with it, which isn't everyone who knows what a road bike is. People travel (I haven't watched a stage yet, don't own a tv, and have been too busy). People have geographic restrictions. Some people are just catching up.

Be nice. :)
