Le Tour de France
Today is the first rest day of the Tour 2003, and the riders need it badly. There has been major accidents almost every day, leaving many wounded like the Austrian Haselbacher on the pic below, who fell during a sprint arrival with over 60 kph. For us spectators, it has all been very exciting. Jan Ullrich is just a little over two minutes behind Lance. With the Pyrenees still to come, this is not the end. So let's hope that all riders recover today and that the next stages will be as exciting as the past ones.
