- Today's stage was shortened (to just 40km) and neutralized following the tragic death overnight, in his sleep, of young rider Frederiek Nolf (Team Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator).  "Cycling is in mourning when you lose such a young talent, a guy like him," said cycling legend Eddy Merckx, who is the technical sponsor for the team.  More here.  Our condolences to the family and friends of Frederiek.
