Hate to look backwards...

and I hate to waste a post on this but I just noticed something interesting that I have not seen commented upon, either here or elsewhere, and it seems to me kind of big:

In Stage 2 of the Tour de France, there was evidently a split of some sort and Bernard Kohl finished 1'59" behind the peloton (which included Sastre and Evans).  Needless to say, if he could have that time back, he would have won the Tour de France (though, just as needless to say, had he not lost that time, the race probably would have played out differently).

Anyone know what happened to him that day?  Seems kind of strange to think that he may have lost the Tour de France that day and no one has said a word about it...
