Zabriske out of Giro It was sad to see David Zabriske crash out of the Giro d'Italia on only the second stage on Sunday. We made sure we were home at 4pm to catch the action on Versus. It was a slow speed crash, which tend to be the worst kind. Instead of sliding he went down hard and fractured his L1 vertabrae.
It was the same day that Christian Vande Velde wore the pink jersey, the first American to wear it in 20 years. That's when Andy Hampsten wore the jersey after winning an epic stage up the Gavia pass in 1988.
Christian lost the jersey on Sunday by one second, and he is still in second place by a second after today's stage. Several riders crashed out today in one of the few sprinter stages.
