RASMUSSEN'S NIGHTMARE. If ever a professional cyclist had a bad day at the office, Michael Rasmussen had it in stage 20's individual time trial. 2 crashes. 4 bikes. Slipping from 3rd place to 7th place overall. Tough day, indeed. The only consolation for the Dane: he will wear the polka-dot jersey in Paris; even after a humiliating day, no one performed better in the mountains than he.
