    Pugdog over at DP says that there are rumors that the two frenchmen were nudged out of the Tour because of suspicious blood values.

    Moreau I can understand. His climbing last year was a surprise. I could see a temptation for him to go out on a high note.

    Yeah, weren't there rumours that AG2R let Moreau go because they considered him too much of a risk? I was expecting him to come into the Tour this year as "prepared" as he was for last year's Dauphine and do a surprising ride, but if anything he's been surprisingly bad. Same goes for Gadret, really bad given what he's shown he can do when on form (e.g. '06 Giro).

    So why did he attack yesterday in the beginning? He could have faked that he was worn out and discreetly dropped out.

    Maybe he wanted to race his bike one last time.

    IIRC, he did this a few years ago too. Just kind of up and pulled out of the race with no explanation to the team or anyone.
