Santiago Botero, the leader of the Telekom team, didn't start Stage 18 this morning.
Botero finished 4th overall last year, but was in 70th place overall after yesterday's stage. He is one of the few riders in this Tour to have beaten Lance Armstrong in a time trial, when he won the first time trial of last year's Tour.
