The 2 euskadel team-mates crashing at 15kph on stage 8 coming up to the summit would sure help push Jules' view. That and a few riders saying they stack more then others

Sorry Jules that is out-of-line. They are not more prone to crashing, it is just that because their jerseys are bright orange, they are more noticable in a crash. :roll:
This one is up for the worst excuse. Someone should give some more thought to that category because there were some lame excuses during the tour.

sorry ft, i don't get. which is the worst excuse, that their orange jerseys made it seem like they were crashing more?


Yes that is what I mean; according to their DS the jerseys made it seem like they were crashing more often.
