Reading – Martin abandons Tour de France due to fractured collarbone

posted in: Links, Other Sports | 0

Had a feeling he was done while I was up early watching this morning. Sad really to have the leader drop out like that. Yeah, he wasn’t going to win the overall Tour, but what many non-fans of the Tour don’t understand is how much honor and respect is due to anyone who wears Yellow for any amount of time, and how hard guys will fight to hang on to it as long as possible.

Many also don’t understand what a dangerous sport cycling at this level can be, but crashes cause serious injuries, and occasionally deaths, when it’s just you and the bike.
