tdf - stage 16 (take 2)

Amazing. I must admit in the back of my head I was thinking something truly wacky was going to happen before this tour was over.

Rasmussen pulls out of the tour

I'm not sure I quite understand what happened. It seems his team fired him and withdrew from the race because a number of facts Rasmussen had contended (like where he was and when) were proven incorrect. It seems like they just didn't trust him and ended up thinking pulling out was better than winning with a cloud over the head of the team.

That puts Contador in the GC leaders spot. I'm sure he is in no way happy about this though.

I'll have more to say on this after the tour is over.
