Stage 16 turned the entire Tour upside down. Landis cracked badly on the ascent to La Toussuire. I was watching the stage this morning, and I felt so bad for him as he was dropped by Menchov, Kloden, Sastre, and Pereiro. When you crack, it’s as if you’re standing still on the bike.
Now 8 minutes down, his Tour looks to be over. There have been comebacks in the past, but it seems like only a miracle will bring him back into yellow by Sunday.
