Stage 9, or, why we love cycling

From the AP:

The last of three Alpine stages meant more trouble for Astana team leader Vinokourov. The Kazakh rider lost another 2:42 to Rasmussen and now trails by 8:05 overall -- in 21st place.

"I did what I could. The team worked well again ... and tried to reduce the gap," Vinokourov told France television.

"It was another horrible day for me," he said before breaking into tears.
