Vande Velde visits hospital at Dauphiné
A couple of stories of interest in today's CyclingNews roundup:
CSC's Christian Vande Velde had to be taken to the hospital last night after Stage 2 at the Dauphiné Libéré, and was a probable starter for today's time trial -- I haven't seen confirmation that he did or didn't start yet. (Update: VeloNews had him riding in the team car while Zabriskie raced today, but he's going to try to gut out the rest of the race. VN quotes him: “It's looking good for the Tour.”) He crashed out of last month's Tour of Catalonia.
Caisse d'Epargne director Eusebio Unzue says he's still unsure of his Tour squad. Despite a published report by Het Laatste Nieuws, Unzue says Vladimir Karpets is still in competition for the team's last Tour spot, with José Ivan Gutierrez, Joaquim Rodriguez, and David Arroyo the other candidates. And lest anyone coast for the next 3 weeks, Unzue added, “There are still riders like Luis León Sánchez, García Acosta or Fran Pérez who should justify their nomination. Pereiro is not at his best, either.”
