So the photos I posted yesterday from the Issoire-Saint-Flour Stage of the Tour resulted in 33 stitches for Hoogerland. Most awesome thing from the day – Hoogerland came back to finish the race and took the polka-dot jersey for best climber before going to the hospital for the stitches!

Guy deserves a medal for tenacity or stupidity. Not sure which.
