Another one bites the dust

OK. Take a deep breath. I do not know what today's stage did to the GC, but I do know that this blog has been right AGAIN.

Last night or early this morning the Rabobank team and Michael Rasmussen parted ways and therefore Rasmussen is OUT of the 2007 Tour de France.

His training program leading up to the Tour de France was suspect as were his preparations for this race. Because the team leadership couldn't verify that he was training according to the rules, they decided that he couldn't represent them.

Then, this morning, the Tour de France and organizer Mr Prudhomme decided to disallow Rasmussen's participation.

Now let me check the wires and race transcripts emailed to me to see how today's ride shook out.
