One way to get some attention

Samuel Dumoulin of AG2R got called out yesterday by Lance Armstrong in the post-race OLN coverage for his involvement in a late-stage crash. Armstrong said something like "Seems like it's always Dumoulin" in the wrecks.

I felt pretty sorry for Dumoulin, but it turns out, he actually got into two different crashes yesterday.

"I'm hurting all over," he told L'Equipe. "Both elbows are injured. I'm bruised everywhere. I touched a wheel while leading Jean-Patrick Nazon in the sprint. I'm scared."

Dumoulin, who won Stage 2 and wore the leader's jersey at the Dauphiné Libére in June, crashed out of last year's Tour when he hit a dog.
