McGee having medical problems?
Bradley McGee was the consensus pick to win yesterday's prologue, but finished 4th, blaming stomach trouble that kept him from doing a proper warmup.
Today, he's spent a big part of the day off the back, with Mario Cipollini's group of chasers, and race reports have him conferring with his team doctor.
At his website, McGee notes he's 2kg lighter than he's ever been. Just yesterday, McGee predicted his weight loss would make him a factor in the GC this year.
Update: With about 10 miles (16 km) to ride, McGee has been spit off the back like me on a training ride. Could be the return of McGee's mysterious blood sugar ailment.
