Stage Seven: Tour de France 2012

Christophe Mengin pictured here was having a better day, but back in 2005 on stage six things didn’t turn out so good. Watching this will give a little taste of his misery here. He had worked so hard to get in the break away and then get the jump only to crash on the final corner. You can see the devastation he felt. He made it to stage seven, but abandoned before starting stage 8. It would of weighed heavy on his heart to make that decision. It’s unfortunately a common story of every Tour. This year is no different and some will go home early and broken. Most come back to fight another time a few poor souls don’t. I find that hard to contemplate. Big respect goes to every rider today.
