Unfortunately, former Lanterne Rouge (several stages in 2006) Sébastien Joly of Francaise de Jeux was a casualty and dropped out today midway through the stage. He's one of the notable cancer survivors in the peloton (though there may be others).

There was a huge autobus finish today with 48 riders arriving at 28:29 after the stage winner, and Eduardo Gonzalo Ramirez (Agritubel) and Angelo Furlan (Lampre) arriving shortly thereafter.

Kenny Robert Van Hummel, the Dutch rider on Skil-Shimano, remains Lanterne Rouge for the second day. He was the first starter in the individual time trial earlier in the Tour, I believe.
