Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

Dave Z abandons

Poor Dave Zabriskie's injuries sustained during the team time triall crash have caught up with him and he abandoned during today's stage.

It's really the first bad news for any American rider since the beginning of this year's Tour. Only American riders have worn the yellow jersey. American riders have won a stage, an American team won the team time trial, 4 American riders are in the top 10 - all in all, pretty impressive.

Congratulations to Dave Z for winning a stage, wearing yellow and battling for as long as he could - see you in the Vuelta!
