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... ;)
