Overheard

Erik Breukink (Rabobank team manager) commenting on Denis Menchov's performance during stage 9 to Briancon:

Denis dropped the ball but there is nothing you can do about it. He just did not have a very good day and you cannot get away with that on this level.

Quote source.

Nothing like standing behind one of your riders.

Yeah Rasmussen wasn't much kinder....

"Now there is no doubt about who is the captain of this team is. ...... I felt very clear in the head today seeing the tactics of the race. It was disappointing that Menchov couldn't get his ass over the Galibier. I think it's a climber's Tour."
