Flat tyre stops Wood

A flat tyre kept Oenone Wood from fighting for the stage win in the second stage of the Trophée d'Or Sunday. The T-Mobile rider was in an escape group with Team Bigla's Nicole Brändli and Noemi Cantele but the mechanical problem threw her back and she finished third, about four minutes down.

"Of course Oenone is disappointed. But something like this can always happen," said Anna Wilson, the team's sporting director on t-mobile-team.com. "But I am happy to see her doing so well in such a difficult and demanding race like this after her injury and the stressful trip to Peking."
