TDF 09 - stange 12 - Levi Leipheimer broke his wrist in a crashMan, this sucks... Levi Leipheimer was involved in a crash in yesterday's stage 12; initially it looked like he was okay, he got up and finished, but later it turned out he'd broken his wrist and had to withdraw from the tour.  Reminds me of the injury George Hincapie sustained a few years ago in the Tour of California...  anyway this really sucks, Levi is such a great guy, and Lance and Alberto are really going to miss him in the alps.  Not to mention he was sitting fourth on GC. 

It will make today's stage even more interesting... they're riding even as I type.  This does change the dynamic; it makes Astana a little more vulnerable, and may motivate some of the other teams to attack.  Stay tuned.
