Backstedt abandons

The peloton's biggest rider, Alessio-Bianchi's Magnus Backstedt, has abandoned during Stage 11.

The 216-pound Swede was one of my favorites, but I'll try to keep watching in spite of his absence.

Darn, I was really enjoying his race diary. It should be an interesting last entry.
