Yes, I had my sixth (and a half) crash of the Tour today. The half is for the mechanical I had on the climb the other day. A foot out and on the ground because of the other's crash is considered a half crash. I really have no clue what even happened today. It was over and I was rolling on the ground (in the grass thankfully!) before I knew it. I picked myself up fairly quickly and remounted, but I knew I wouldn't see the peloton again and just kind of took my time. I found some other dropped riders and crash victims and we made a little grupetto to get to the finish. It actually became a little bit of a panic situation because we were thinking somehow we might be close to the time cut. I couldn't believe it really, but thankfully my veteran teammate Jens knows these things and had the wherewithal to ask our director in the radio. In the end we were all good, so I'm still in the race! Tomorrow we will visit the big mountains (in the Alps) for the first time. I'm hoping to be up to the challenge. And I'm excited to experience the real Tour atmosphere in the mountains. Ciao for now.
