What really happened to Lance on Stage 8
SHOOT: Looks like he hurt his hip. He has had Lady Luck smile on him in the 8 previous Tour de France races where he's always managed to avoid illness, crashes etc. Now the test is to find new levels of success, perhaps go for a stage win, find someway to make the most of it. I've trained for Ironman races, so the disappointment of having all those hours of training and time invested unravel in this way is gut wrenching. But you have to find a way to rise above that deep disappointment. Make no mistake, it's hard.
