Cancellara takes a break

3

In news that won't come as a total surprise, the team have announced that Fabian Cancellara is being allowed a well deserved rest and so won't be part of the Ardennes classics team for Amstel & L-B-L. It's a shame, especially as they were already without Matti, but if anyone deserves a rest after the 3 weeks he's put in from Dwaars to P-R then it's Cancellara. Next up for him now will be Tour of Cali

'They should have got rid of the road race from the Olympics'

I hasten to add that the above wasn't said by me, but by Rob Hayles (at least I think it was him) on Eurosport before. It made me so mad that if I could I would have reached through the screen and...

Short video of Dutch BTVSportChannel where they have Cancellara's TT bike in the studio and are discussing it. I don't speak Dutch sadly so don't know what they're saying (if someone could translate that would be wonderful!). For a start it would be interesting to know if, when they are looking at the info on the little computer from the bike, they really do mean Fabian got up to a top speed of 73.21 kmh (!!!) during the TT race last week. Oh and there's some Lars Boom in the studio too at the end (at least I think it's him, sorry if it's not!)

A message from Jens from the SaxoBank TdF site

Little video message from his hospital bed from Jens! You can tell the poor guy landed on his face and slid... He won't be in Paris, which is a shame and he'll certainly be missed there.
