Discovery saves Gadret

Camaraderie - it still exists in the world of cycling. Just ask the French cyclo-cross star John Gadret who is participating in this year's Tour de France. The Ag2r rider has been suffering with an achilles problem for some time and was treated for the problem by Discovery Channel's own specialist on the Tour, Jeff Pierce, according to Sports Wereld.

Pierce is a specialist with such injuries and kindly offered to tape it for Gadret before Stage 15. Gadret promptly repaid Discovery Channel by joining Vinokourov in the main break of the day.
