Tom Boonen Crash

Of the three tours I have watched from beginning to end, this one is by far the most interesting.  Today, the entire peloton was having trouble riding in the rain, especially when they got into Barcelona and had to ride over the white traffic control lines, which get especially slippery when wet.  Here is video (w/French commentary) showing Tom B. crashing because of one of these white lines:

I don't speak French, but I really hope that the commentators are saying something like:

"Tom Boonen crashes - the Belgian continues to have trouble with white lines."  :)

I think a fan dropped a powdered donut and boonen reacted!
