Mengin won't start Saturday

Christophe Mengin (Francaise des Jeux) will not start the eighth stage in Pforzheim on Saturday. The French rider, who spectacularly crashed at the end of Stage 6, has a broken ethmoid under his left eye. Despite this, he did manage to finish stage 7, albeit 1'45 behind the peloton. That reduces the Tour field to 184 riders.
