Same ____, different team.

Easy come, easy go. As easily as Cadel got into first place, he was out.
From leading Vinokourov(who is now in first place) by almost 20 Seconds he is behind him by over 40 after being caught in a pile up.
Prangs happen, and contenders get stuck behind them, but in most cases when a team leader is involved the rest of the team will wait for him and tow him back to the leaders group, but that was the most noticeable thing about the whole thing, no support for Cadel. Yep, maybe he's not a likable kind of guy or he's too quirky and a loner or none of those things but he's the man in the BMC team and he should have had heaps of support rain, hail or shine. No wonder he gets a bit irky.
The race is far from over, but it won't be easy if even possible from here and I bet he's got a pretty strong sense of deja vu. He can only hope he can out climb Vino and Basso in the mountains and pull off a couple of great time trials.
Team time trial tonight, First mountain stage Sunday night.
