I took a closer look today at my images from Stage 8 of the TdF. The Col de la Ramaz had taken its toll and really spread the race out before the final climb. Here's more of those shots.
I previously posted images of Lance trying to limit his losses after two falls had him well back of the leaders on the stage. The back of his jersey tells the story of his day; looks like he got hit with shrapnel.
Another rider having a tough day was AG2R's Maxime Bouet.
Christophe Moreau and Chris Sorensen both appeared in gaps riding solo, Moreau out the saddle, Sorrensen upright and seated.
Garmin's Johan Van Summeren chose the moment to dole out some punishment and he looked strong going by. He finished 25th on the stage.
Jens Voigt came by, zipped up and composed like he'd just ridden onto the course from a coffee shop in Morzine. Great to see him healthy after that awful crash last year.
Finally FDJ's Jeremy Roy in that great white kit appeared to be offering a prayer for the pain to stop. Unfortunately low resolution doesn't do many of these shots justice. You can count the whiskers in the beards of Roy and Moreau.
