2008 Tour de France
July 5 - July 27, 2008

Pictures from Fotoreporter Sirotti from Stage 12, Thursday, July 17: Lavelanet - Narbonne, 168.5 km

I love these photos as the sprinters spread out across the road and form a wall of rampaging, speeding flesh and machines.
And the speedy Mark Cavendish gets his third stage win.
Tour director Christian Prudhomme and ASO president Patrice Clerc held a press conference to discuss Ricco's positive. I'm glad I wasn't the only person suspicious of the Saunier Duval victory on the Hautacam. Prudhomme voiced his doubts (in very reserved terms). Heck. Do you think Piepoli's VAM (rate of vertical ascent per hour in meters) of almost 1800 and still waiting several times for Cobo is normal? I think that's how fast Pantani could climb.
Another day in Yellow for Evans.
