Saddest headline of the day

From the official Tour website:

18:10 - Voigt Eliminated From Le Tour 2005

The overall leader after nine stages finished the 11th stage in 168th position. Jens Voigt was the second-last rider in the stage to Briancon. Although he fought hard to stay within the time limit which is calculated on a percentage on the winning time, he has been eliminated from the Tour.

Also eliminated was Quick Step's Kevin Hulsmans.

Ouch - tough couple of days for Jensie. Apparently he's been suffering from a fever. I wonder if his massive effort that led to him winning the yellow jersey 3 days ago might have had something to do with that. CSC have now had 2 riders claim the yellow, only to have to abandon the race a couple of days later. It's da curse of da Bjarnino, I tellya... ;)
