Today's HTFU poster boy: Johan Vansummeren

who raced two weeks of the Tour de France with a cracked vertebra, courtesy of the Metz Massacre. While team mates Ryder Hesjedal and Tom Danielson were knocked out of the race by the crash, Summie soldiered on and finished the Tour in 147th place. Although he'd been checked for shoulder problems after the crash, the cracked vertebra wasn't revealed until he was scanned Tuesday at a hospital in Lommel.

Once again, I'm just in awe of what these guys put themselves through for our amusement. Hats off to Summie!
