Oscar Freire’s medical issues bring an end to his campaign July 14, 2007

Posted by dperry1ma in Oscar Freire, Rabobank, Team Rabobank, Tour de France.

Oscar Freire bravely battled through 6 stages despite the eruption of an incredibly painful  cyst on his tailbone just prior to the start of the Tour. The Rabobank rider even sprinted spectacularly during the last 3 stages, but the prospect of battling both the pain and the mountains was too much for Freire. He withdrew prior to the start of today’s stage.

Hats off to Freire, who was thought by some to be unlikely to complete a single stage given his condition.
