Gerolsteiner's Paco Wrolich is having a hard time of it right now. "I've been dragging around with stomach problems for two days now. I can barely eat. It's especially bad with a stage like today (Thursday) where the rain and cold take a lot out of you anyway," he writes on his website, www.peterwrolich.at.
He lost contact with the peloton on the last climb. "I had to fall back, I had no power left. I hope my physical condition improves overnight." He finished the day 133rd, 2.27 down.
