    He probably went until the endorphins from the injury subsided. I would say most people would be whining just trying to ride one tenth of a stage at low speed uninjured.

    Actually a broken Tibia so he has reason to be whining a bit. He rode until the endorphins wore off I imagine.

    As a non-English native, what's the difference between tibia and shin? My translator gives the same danish word as a result for both words.

    I ride there often...did the ROAN GROAN in early June....have ridden many of the great climbs in the area. It is about a 4 hour drive so for me on a weekly basis I just go to Monteagle, which is less than an hour from me. The climbs are not as long, (3-5 miles) but there are several and the grades vary from about 6% to well over 10%.

    And until it was obvious that Astana was on the attack and he wasn't coming back to them.

    Tibia is the large bone in the lower leg and is also called the shin bone by some.

    Cancellara out, no serious GC contender to support and training for other things. Anyone think that Specialized is covering up the fact that a crappy frame broke on Contadors bike?

    Cancellara has dropped out to train for the World Championship. There is a lot of inconsistencies about what happened to Contador, his bike frame and how many times he crashed. It would no be good if a Specialized frame just broke.
