Many cyclists have experienced knee issues in one form or another. When I was racing I can remember having bouts of tendonitis where riding was out of the question for extended periods. The high volume of miles, hours and pedal revs will wildly magnify any imperfections or alignment issues in the pedal stroke causing inflammation and irritation in the hip, knees or ankles.

So close yet so far! Poor Jack Bauer and Martin Elmiger got caught ON the finish line today at the Tour de France.

Bravo Nibali! Vincenzo Nibali won another stage today on a day that finished with an ugly climb to the finish. After finding his way into a breakaway Nibali terminated his breakaway companions and soloed to the finish. He gained more time on his rivals and further padded his lead in the overall.

Today was destined from the start to be a sprint finish at the 2014 Tour de France. Alexandre Kristoff prevailed at the end holding on Peter Sagan and sprinters from Giant/Shimano and FDJ. Sagan was well placed coming into the sprint but Kristoff proved too fast.

Today, unfortunately, saw the abandonment of the heavy race favorite Alberto Contador. On a day filled with crashes (again) Contador fell heavily and broke his leg with a huge gash on his knee. He remounted a new bike after his crash but after a few kilometers, he climbed off for good.

Ooof! Tough uphill finish today for the boys at the Tour de France. With a fairly large climb at the end and rainy conditions the race today was another grind. Blel Kadri took stage honors while the GC men battled it out for over-all glory. Nibali was Contadors shadow up the final climb and Richie Porte managed to hang on until the last kilometer or so.
