TdF Stage 8 review

What else happened, i.e. the not-so-good news:

Michael Rogers (T-Mobile) out after a crash, in which he injured his shoulder.

Stuart O'Grady (CSC) out of the Tour after a crash; 5 broken ribs, a fractured shoulder, a punctured lung, a broken collarbone, and 3 cracked vertebrae.

After the stage finish, Patrik Sinkewitz (T-Mobile) hits a fan on the way to his hotel, who is in a coma now. Sinkewitz was also transported to a hospital.

Robbie McEwen (Predictor-Lotto) disqualified from the Tour after failing to meet the time limit.

Cycling Fans Anonymous has some pointed commentary.
