Zabriskie doing well
Dave Zabriskie, the American rider for CSC who wore the yellow jersey, but was forced to withdraw from the Tour de France several days after experiencing a dramatic crash in the Stage 4 team time trial, seems to be doing well. On his website his sense of humor is evidently still intact. He defends his team against the criticism it encountered from Bob Roll for leaving him alone in his crash:
"Just so everyone knows, Team CSC did not abandon me. In our meeting before the team time trial we agreed that the only rider we’d wait for would be Ivan since he’s our G.C. rider. I love being a part of Team CSC and since the day I joined, the team has done nothing but try to help me in any way it can."Good luck at the World Championships, Dave!
