Stage 12: Go Tom Boonen!!! Erik Zabel and Robbie Hunter (go Barloworld!) tried to pass Boonen up at the end of the race but they couldn't quite out-sprint the Belgium's legs. See the recap at TDF Blog, Spare Cycles, Group News Blog, Biking Bis, and TdF07.

More Stage 12 links: For those who missed the news, Dave Zabriskie was dropped after Stage 11 yesterday because he finished outside of the time allowance. He's been struggling through le Tour this year. His contract with CSC is up this year.

Interesting that you mention Sinkewitz's case next to the anniversary of Floyd Landis's amazing breakaway win on Stage 17 to Morzine. Ironically, Sinkewitz was the last man Landis dropped on his way to victory that day. And now they have both tested positive for testosterone.
