We were able to slow it down a bit, capture the leader of the pack and the laggards......
The route for Stage 12 from Lavelanet to Narbonne is 168.5 km. Once they got past Puivert and Quillan, it was a fast downhill course the rest of the way.
Just before the crash. It was Barloworld's Aussie racer Baden Cooke. He got back on the bike, but dropped out a few km later. We didn't get it on film, but this is the very spot it occurred. And these folks must have seen it.
Brit Mark Cavendish for Team Columbia won Stage 12. Team Columbia is a USA team. It's about time something is going right for the US.
