Go Floyd!... oh no, Floyd!

Brief Tour de France Update:

Tuesday was a good stage for the US! Levi Leipheimer had a good stage and regained some time on the "general classification" and Floyd Landis regained the yellow jersey - everything seemed right in the world. (Aside from the fact that George Hincapie is still not riding all that well. sigh...)

Yesterday, however, Floyd cracked big-time on the last climb up to the finish line - he lost 8 minutes on the day (which is a LOT of time to lose, if you hope to win the Tour) and now there is only one American in the top 10 - Levi Leipheimer in 9th place.

Doesn't look good. :(
