Jens Voigt drops out
Germany's Jens Voigt of Credit Agricole struggled mightily on the course to Toulouse today, trailing the peloton by more than 15 minutes. Stomach problems claimed Voigt, who wore the yellow jersey briefly and won a stage in 2001. He lives near Toulouse, but couldn't make it to the stage finish.
His exit leaves 170 riders still in the race.
