The Peloton: Six lighter
Six riders didn’t make it to Pau. Vincent Jerome (Europcar), Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-Quick Step), Brett Lancaster (Orica-GreenEdge), Giovanni Bernaudeau (Europcar), Yauheni Hutarovich (FDJ) and Kenny van Hummel (Vacansoleil-DCM) all abandoned.
No in-race infractions. Police did, however, crack down on media cars driving on the race route. One media car was removed from the race for three days for driving too fast while three others were kicked off the race permanently for excessive speeds. Another media car was also removed permanently from the race after failing an alcohol test. The names of the media members were not released. (Thankfully, none of the offenders were VeloNews staff members. —Ed.)
Julien Fouchard (Cofidis), knee pain
Bram Tankink (Rabobank), breathing difficulties
Alessandro Vanotti (Liquigas-Cannondale), pain in right thigh
Thibaut Pinot (FDJ), digestive troubles
Cedric Pineau (FDJ), digestive troubles
