"Things Like This Happen In Bike Racing"

That's from Tyler Farrar, showing his class after an Ag2R rider collided with Farrar's rear wheel, leaving his bike attached to Farrar's rear derailleur. It's tough to win a bunch sprint at the Tour while dragging a second bike along the road! It blew a perfect opportunity for Farrar to grab a stage sprint after a clusterf#*+k of a run-in left Mark Cavendish, Oscar Freire and others on the ground and Alessandro Petacchi taking the win in front of Cavendish's main man, Mark Renshaw.

Earlier in the stage, a dog darted into the pack, send a mass of riders including several contenders to the tarmac.

Look for Farrar dragging the AG2R bike on this video.

We're just getting started and things are already pretty crazy in thie Tour. Now, we'll just have to see if things settle down or if they'll continue the unpredictable spin!
