Zabriskie update

David Zabriskie (CSC) has been confirmed as starting today's fifth stage between Chambord and Montargis, although he won't have an easy time of it after his spectacular crash towards the end of yesterday's team time trial. Although X-rays taken on Tuesday evening showed that there was nothing broken, Zabriskie did have to have stitches in his elbow, and is nursing bruised ribs on his right side and a sore, swollen knee.

With another windy, cool day with a chance of rain predicted today, it's hard to know if Zabriskie will hang in there. At the very least, he will hope for dry weather.
